What did I buy? I recently bought a "GranSport" front derailleur, it looked good in the photos, but when I unwrapped it, it was strange.

The cage had the fixing bolt on the top like it should, but instead of the jewel like chrome it was a flat industrial finish, not zinc plated like the Valentinos.

The body also has an extension cast on to it to better support the actuator rod.

Has any one ever seen one like this, is it even a Gran Sport?
