- Shadow mechs …why more difficult to set up and keep sweet
I have no personal experience of shadow type mechs but will soon be fitting one. never had any probs with the older style but seem to remember that there has been some criticism of the new type in relation to fitting and staying in adjustment. Can anyone in the know give me a quick summary of what the problem/s are and if there is anything to look out for …or is it all straightforward ?Posted 9 years ago
thanks in advance
No cack handed baboon here, but my XT Shadow definitely been a lot more of a chore to keep running sweet than the (very sh@gged) X9 it replaced. It’s never more than a click of the adjuster away, but you can start a ride with everything running sweet, and by mid point it’ll need just a little tlc. Just won’t *quite* go as instantly as it should.
The low-profileness does work though. 2 weeks of hugely technical riding in Les Arcs and I was one of the few riders who didn’t mangle a mech (left a lot of the paint off it behind, mind…!)Posted 9 years ago
