    Sram-Specialized 29er specific front derailleur

    Hi
    Specialized teamed up with Sram to produce a 29er specific derailleur with a view to making the CS far shorter than they usually are.
    Specialized Enduro 29 has 430mm of CS and is just 13mm longer than its 26 brethren.
    How about introducing this kind of equipment into other manufacturers' frames, which up to this time are designed with 26specific derailleurs.
    This derailleur is not yet patented by Specialized so any 29er producer might and actually should look into it. It would enable also those shorter naysayers that it was the frame design not the wheels, which made their demo ride awful.

    Would you stay with traditional derailleurs and long CS or new one with short CS?

    Well what do you think? It may shorten the CS on all existing 29ers even those XC up into the AM/FR realm.

    Hey Davidcopperfield, it's Christmas, why don't you give us the gift of shutting up till after New Year.
    If I had a black light this place would look like a Jackson Pollock painting.
