Posted 4 years ago orangeboyMember You can use a 105 with a 28.6 tube Are your 105 10 speed ? Posted 4 years ago Nipper99Subscriber they are – running with a 9speed xt out back on 11/36 cassette Posted 4 years ago Nipper99Subscriber What front mech (mtb bottom pull) to go with 105 STI shifters. I’m guessing a non ds xt type shifter for 9 a speed set will work or can you shim a 105 front mech down to 28mm? Will be for a 32 / 22 set of front rings. Posted 4 years ago Nipper99Subscriber so a 28.6 105 will do the job then?? Posted 4 years ago Viewing 5 posts - 1 through 5 (of 5 total) The topic ‘Front Mech Query’ is closed to new replies.
