The m-part mech on my 2012 Boardman CX is dead. It's a nine speed setup and I can't find anything to replace it with in the SRAM range (don't want another m-part, it was rubbish from day 1). Am I just lacking the requisite googling skills? Alternatively can I use a SRAM rival/apex 10 speed setup?
Boardman CX - replacement 9Speed Front mech - help!
Won't a Shimano mech work? I'm using a 105 double front mech with Rival on my 10sp roadie.
You mean the clamp, like this?
As above, I'd have thought a shimano would work.
From my experience a front mech is a front mech regardless of brand its only the rears that get into weird cable pull, I run a 9 speed on my 8speed cross bike and a 10 speed campag on my 9 speed road bike just make sure u get the correct fitment is reg the banding
Edit- if its a m pard band it may well be a microshift mech u have
I've got a 10sp Rival double, 34.9mm band-on in my spares box if you want to stick with Sram.
The mech not the clamp. Maybe it's m-part clamp and a microshift mech as RP says above.
Chapaking - might take you up on that. Not really bothered about brand as long as it works. This is not the case with the current mech
Just checked on mine and it's microshift.
Mine seems fine.
I wonder why they did that though - youd think getting a full groupset of SRAM would negate cost savings of one bit.
According to the current spec, they use a Microshift R74.
Thanks AS. Mine developed loads of play, think I got something stuck in it during an extremely muddy ride. Going to try a cheap/2nd hand 10 speed and see how we get on.
