Posted 4 years ago porter_jamieSubscriberthe mechs come with convertors/shims in the box Posted 4 years ago Rusty MacSubscriberBut it is an excuse to first drink a beer then carefully shape one yourself. Please note the first part is important 😉 Posted 4 years ago ginge24MemberHaha yeah any excuse for a beer rusty 😀I haven’t got any converters . Posted 4 years ago ads678SubscriberIf you need to pad it out just whack a bit of old inner tube in there. Works perfectly on my inbred!! Posted 4 years ago ginge24MemberThat ads is a bloody good idea I will try that 1 now ! Cheers Posted 4 years ago JoeGSubscriber28.6 shims come with most Shimano front derailleurs. If you didn’t get any, then your LBS or someone on STW probably has a set lying around. I’d suggest a wanted add on the classified forum.Item 3 in this XT Tech Doc Posted 4 years ago ginge24MemberI’ve just started putting more bits in to my build to find out I’ve bought the wrong size front mech.
