Is that how little demand there is for the poor old front derailleur?!

It's not a part that I can ever remember needing to replace on a bike and if I was building a new bike I would be using 12 speed SRAM.

It's a SRAM. That's all you need to know.

Counterfeit? Older model?

And 25E for shipping kind of ups the final price.

No, that's the shipping fee to Saudi Arabia because that was my location setting when I took the screen shot. They will gladly ship to a local address for 3.99.

Here's another one for 5 plus 3.99 for shipping:

The 1x revolution decreased demand.

I've seen that usually front derailleurs are discounted so much because the mounting system is odd. In fact, I believe this fr does not have the tube bracket, but screws directly into the frame. If your frame is tapped for that, then you've found a great bargain.
