Installed this on our 7speed bike several month ago. 300miles later it still shifts very well without any additional adjustment. Great value.

Be aware that the Tourney derailleurs come in two hanger style, the claw (open hole) style (this one) and the closed hole style. Make sure you get the one that fits your bike. They are not interchangeable.

Edit: having now about 1000 miles. and still going well. No problem whatsoever.

Construction is mostly metal housing with plastic gears. This is an upgrade from almost any bike you'll find at a big box store such as K-mart or Wall-mart and is an excellent replacement for the price. Unless you plan to be crashing into trees while downhill racing this will perform well for almost any rider.

Be sure the set the limiting screws so you can't pull the derailleur all the way into the spokes on the rear wheel. I've seen many bikes returned to the store after this has happened, or after the bike is dropped and bends the derailleur.

As another reviewer mentioned, this derailleur attaches to the rear wheel axle and is held on by the wheel nut. There is another type that attaches to the frame of the bike near the rear wheel with a bolt that usually takes a 5mm hex bit, but this is less common. Be sure to check which type you need before ordering.

If your wondering, yes this derailleur will work with the MegaRange series of freewheels/cassettes. (ones with 30+ tooth first gear and this one I think is rated for a max of a 34 tooth gear)

It gets along with my MegaRange freewheel much better then the old one and has less shifting issues. Old derailleur would not hold 4th gear and would always jump to 5th. I couldn't tighten the alignment any further as a result since it was maxed on on the first gear limit and putting it any further past would derail the chain off the first gear and into the spokes which is bad news. :P

This new one does not have that issue and copes well with the new chain and freewheel on the bike. It holds 4th gear and once calibrated, it will shift smoothly. (I am using a Shimano brand 6 speed SIS index shifter which I also got from Amazon and they get along nicely. :D)

So for road bikes and perhaps light off-roading, this shifter will definitely hold up. Don't use this for heavy off-roading though. The plastic gears in this derailleur look like they will brake if abused heavily. :P

Got the Shimano Tourney at a local store (instead of online) as it was on clearance for $11. i think the model is the TX31 (same or close to TX35).
Using it a replacement for a bent derailleur on my sons bike. Apparently will work for 6/7/8 speeds as you just adjust the limit screws.

Not the highest quality but should do the trick for a couple years for my purposes.

Purchased the version with the hanger as my direct connect dropout was bent/stripped when we damaged the original derailleur.

Using it with GripShift adjusters.

Plastic construction - would not buy this if you were doing regular trail riding and would also recommend derailleur guard (especially for kids).

Easy install - don't need to separate the chain as you can remove one of the derailleur sprockets and insert chain and reinsert sprocket.

Takes a bit of adjustment and testing to get limits and cable tension right but should be smooth after a bit - if you are having trouble shifting (too hard) you may need a new cable.

Had this derailleur installed on my wifes Huffy and it finally shifted on all gears with very little adjustment, still a low end Shimano but it made a huge difference in shifting. The Golden Sun brand that came with the bike always jumps and I finally learned my lesson on department store bikes.Don't want to throw away the bike so I took a chance on this very affordable shimano and very pleased with the result. I also added a new shimano 7 speed freewheel and helped as well!

The Shimano Tourney TX35 Rear Derailleur is sturdy, light, and smooth. I was concerned at first how it would work with the friction shifters on my 1980's Raleigh road bike, but found it to work wonderfully. I have never touched a derailleur prior to this, and installed it myself in about 2 hours (now that I know, it wouldn't take my nearly as long). Adjusting it at times so that the high and lows were set right was tiring, but I believe that to be a fault of my old, need-to-be-replaced shifter cables. I have not had a chance to take it on a long ride, but my initial test ride to ensure proper alignment showed it was a huge step up from the ancient Suntour derailleur that was on it for 25+ years.

Less than half the price of a local bike store!

Tools required:
5mm hex key (for mounting bolt)
3mm hex key (to take apart the cage to install the chain)
11/32 wrench (for the cable clamp nut)
small screwdriver, phillips or flat head (for adjusting/aligning after installation)

I had to bend the frame tab quite a bit to get it to line up, but that's to be expected on a kids' bike -- they beat up their bikes. Hence, the replacement derailleur! Mounting the thing wasn't too difficult compared to bending the frame tab. The instructions were crap, but adjustments were easy after watching the youtube video "How to Adjust Shimano Rear Derailleurs" by Art's Cyclery (I'd provide a link, but I don't know if that's allowed in Amazon reviews).

I installed it in place of a Shimano RD-TX31 (on a Performance Bike "Burnout" model kid's 20" bike), and it is a perfect fit. Be sure you match the mounting style -- this one is a closed-hole mount that attaches to a frame tab below/behind the axle nut. This one is NOT the "claw" type that attaches to the axle.
