One last thing in this thread and yes I know one component is OT. The Shimano Dura-Ace triple front derailleur is designed for the kind of range Jerry is using; one of my customers uses it on a tandem with 26/40/55 chainrings on Deore XT cranks similar to the 30/39/53 that it's made for. I seriously doubt that it would work with any pre-Zephyr TA cranks due to chainring/crankarm clearance, though. David Feldman Vancouver, WA --- Peter Jon White <lists@PeterWhiteCycles.com> wrote:
