Hope T Rex and XT RM clearance (Not! Arrrghhhh!)
no joy, I added 4 links and spent some time fettling, there is no way to all the shifting working smoothly, I can get the top and bottom OK if I accept jumps in the middle, I cam sort the middle but then not get the bottom 40T.
there is no combo of settings of cable tension and B screw I can find to make it all work.
I put my regular 11-36 back on, it worked perfectly immediately.Posted 3 years ago
Mrs Stu will be picking up a 2015 Nimble 9 in January.
It’ll mainly be used as a singlespeed but every now and again it might sprout gears.
I’ll have a mess about with a 42T and rad cage on there and see what happens.
but intend to file the mech on the grounds (for my frame) it’s easier to replace.
I think that’s the right way to go about it. Easier to change the top knuckle on the mech than try to get a new slider.Posted 3 years agobenpinnickSubscriber
Not sure if anyone posted this but… its the extra long b screw thats the issue I believe, as the mech is rotating around a pivot set away from the centre of the cassette, you’ll find the b screw winding in will cause the arm to get too close to the middle range cogs. Winding it out gives more clearance.Posted 3 years ago
Hopefully this diagram will help. I filed off the bit pointed at by the red arrow. The green line indicates how much I took off which was about 1.5mm.
It should allow your derailleur to sit a bit further down. However, having done all of that I bought a new derailleur hanger for My frame and that seems to set the derailleur much further away anyway.Posted 3 years ago
