9 Speed Mech for XTC 2012 Frame

Postby Rozza » Sat Feb 09, 2013 16:56 pm

Now then,

I have a new Giant XTC frame that I was wanting to transfer components to from my 2007 XTC Composite frame. The thing is, things have moved on a wee bit. The new press fit BB is on the from Germany, forks were fitted nee bother but my rear mech doesn't seem to fit. Circa 2007 XT, the much seems to be too bulky at the top end and won't fit the frame?

Am I being a biff or do I need a new much? If so I'd like it to be Shimano and it has to be 9 speed. All advice greatfully received.

Many thanks,

Rozza.

Can't see why it shouldn't fit! Any pics of the problem?

Gosh that was quick! The threads on the mech seem to be too fat (technical term), so does the top of the mech? I'll try and upload a photo, it'll be my first time so may be a while. Please don't stay in and wait for it, there's ale to be drunk.

threads are the same now as they were when the mech was invented.

Hang on, big bad biff! Too much Theakstons Old Peculiar! Urrrr, I was trying to attach it directly to the frame without the hanger. Gonna order one now, you think the frame would come with one!

Anyway, volunteers required to test ride this rig when built, personal insurance required. I shall accept no responsibility for injury or death.

All the best,

Rozza.

check the box.

normally not attached as they get bent.

Cheers Nick,

Just have and no joy. It came with an intergrated HS and all the trimmings but no hanger. I'll order one in tonight.
