    I have a couple vintage SunTour VX rear derailleurs in my collection, aside the original one that was on my vintage Fuji bike. I love the SunTour derailleurs all models besides VX, but one thing that's confusing me is why there a V on the side of the derailleur? Maybe it's saying it's a part of the V series? I just don't know.
     
  2. Yep, the V was ‘V series’ the x became known as x for ‘extra light’

    The V on the side of the derailleur means it's a part of the V series.
