A derailleur is a part on the bicycle that ensures that the bicycle chain can be moved from one chain wheel to the other chain wheel while cycling. There are two types, namely a front and rear derailleur. The accelerator on the handlebars operates the derailleur. In addition to lubricating the bottom bracket, seat post, bicycle chain, bicycle hub and gear hub, the derailleur will also have to be lubricated and maintained.
