Well I’ve built a two speed. It’s fun! Sort of either one or the other. Up/Down, Road/Offroad.
Second hand middleburn double, in fairly minty nick. Worn out but fine topswing XTR FD picked up from the seller of the frame. Single ancient Deore thumb shifter, got the other one ready to fit to the New Success RD.
Obvs pointless having a RD on with the single (I’ve added a huge limiter screw to keep it in place), I could have left the surly tensioner. Thought I’d fit it ready for a double FW. Then found out I missed the one I want at Bikemonger by a few days ... gahhh ... I did ask them to save it but hey ho, snooze=lose. @cake I’m now begging for your one!
