WTB-MicroShift Advent X Rear Der &/or Anyone near Phoenix, AZ to Facilitate?

Likely a long shot, but wondering if anyone might have one on hand they're willing to part with.

I'd love to find one of the lighter RD-M6205AM models, but they're out of stock everywhere I've checked... https://www.microshift.com/en/product/rd-m6205am/

Alternately, if anyone happens to be in the greater Phoenix, AZ area (Chandler/Gilbert/Mesa) area and would be willing to pick up and ship me a derailleur from Global Bikes, please let me know!

They supposedly have them in stock but don't/won't ship - https://www.globalbikes.info/product...r-377487-1.htm

Thanks!

I'm not a Campy guy but you're right, they do bear a striking resemblance.

I had a full Advent X drivetrain I'd intended to use for a winter commuter/porteur build, but an unexpected trip to the midwest to help my parents with some stuff enabled me to use it, along with a bunch of other parts in my stash, to overhaul and upgrade the Trek 'Mountain Track' my Mom picked up this spring and had been riding.

She's never been much of a rider and I'm really hoping that with a nicer, and easier to ride bike, she'll use it more often and hopefully see some health benefits.

I think it turned out great and is far more comfortable, upright, lighter, quieter, functional, and safer with the Reelights; though she wasn't willing give up the ultra cushy foam seat to try the Brooks B66 I brought along .

The 1x Advent X set up w/narrow/wide front ring worked great and has huge range which now has me eager to get my build completed, but of course the derailleurs are now out of stock everywhere.

Before & after, the seatpost was replaced w/an alloy micro adjust unit too:

These are on backorder, but expected late October. Fantastic stuff, I'll be buying 3 groupsets myself.
