Anyone fitted a front mech for a compact, full guards and big tyres (700x38)? Just building one up and it all looks a bit tight back there, even with the wheel at the end of the dropouts, and not sure it'll all fit. Doesn't look like I'll get the guard on the chainstay bridge with the rear mech fitted.
Guards are Tortec ones, very similar to chromoplastics. Tyres are Schwalbe marathon. Front mech is chunky old SLX double I had in the parts bin (looking at it I'm not even sure if it'll work with the compact chainset!)
Edit... forget that, looking at a road front mech I'll just fit one of them! Now would it work with a flat bar X9 shifter?
