Posted 5 years ago mintimperialSubscriberGood work! That’ll likely last for years whilst everything else on your bike breaks… Posted 5 years ago teethgrinderSubscriberAll SRAM rear mechs are Frankemechs IMHO.There’s not been a lovley rear mech since the M732 short cage. Posted 5 years ago Johnny PanicSubscriberGood work Sir, and I give you the Dangermech… Araldite & hacksaw blades. Posted 5 years ago mikeydMemberAwesome Johnny, it’ll just slice any rock in half that it comes into contact with! Posted 5 years ago Johnny PanicSubscriberIt was a stout bit of heather that did for it in the first place 🙂 The second carbon cage x0 I’ve broken. Won’t be buying another. Even second hand, just too expensive. Posted 5 years ago hamishthecatMemberNice work Mike. It has a certain, er utilitarian, charm…Couldn’t you have trimmed the corners off a bit? Posted 5 years ago cRaNkEnStEinSubscriberExcellent work, sir. Bikes with diy = character 🙂 Posted 5 years ago DickBartonMemberI have an m732 short cage in my drawer…waiting to be used once more. Posted 5 years ago brattySubscriberGood bodging. I like it.I have to say this shows the difference between us and the Yanks. I’m sure a Yank would show a step by step guide to making a new cage using carbon sheeting. We just bang some old hacksaw blade in it with somme glue! Posted 5 years ago Biscuit PoweredMemberIs it possible to actually seperate the carbon cage plate from the mech knuckle on these? Posted 5 years ago mikeydMemberYes, you can seperate the carbon cage plate thing on the X0, the X9 however seems to have been made as one unit, so it had to be cut out (completely destroying the mech)..Shot of the X9-X0 ‘Splice’ interface beneath the steel; Corners trimmed a bit @ Hamish’s request; Posted 5 years ago Viewing 12 posts - 1 through 12 (of 12 total)The topic ‘X9 + X0 = Frankenmech’ is closed to new replies.
