As per the title I want to know whether you can use the same front mech with a compact and a double chainset. I.e. if I buy a front mech from a groupset that originally had a double chainset, can I use it with a compact?
I assume by double you mean standard ring size (53t big ring) and compact 50t or smaller.
As long as if your frame has enough adjustment in the brazed on front mech hanger then it'll work ok. If you have a band on front mech, just lower it.
yeee that's it. Nice one, cheers!
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
