---------Feb 4, 2020 NOTE:
These were available in silver but Shimano decided to stop making those - drat... These black M591 derailleurs will also go away forever, supposedly sometime later this year, unfortunately.
--June 2022 - The black M591 derailleurs have now been discontinued by Shimano, too. But we have lots on backorder and they continue to trickle in from time to time.
