    Minimum tooth difference between chainrings on SLX compact FD?

    I'm thinking of moving from a 22/36 setup to a 22/34 or 24/34 setup on my AM bike. I'm running an SLX M665 double front derailleur, and the Shimano documentation doesn't have a minimum tooth difference number for the 665/667. Any tried a 10 or 12 tooth gap with these derailleurs? Any shifting issues?

    I'm running a 24/36 with my SLX crank and same derailleur. It works great.

    I have the slx compact also for 9 speeds. Running 22/32 rings no issue. Shifts really well actually. I use to use the triple fr derailleur. This ones much better.
