My completely uneducated guess is that there's something wrong with the aRx. The AR based derailleurs are generally really smooth.

About the Cyclone looking "wrong" on an 80s bike... I used my Cyclone on my 84 Schwinn Voyageur SP, it's a classy looking mech on a classy looking bike. Only reason I changed mine out was I went to an XC Pro that was like 8 years newer than the bike instead of the 8 years older. The Cyclone proudly shifts my 78 Trek.
