    finished a nimble 9 . . . have 1 question.

    I build it full geared 3*9.
    locked the dropouts at the middle.
    I have noticed that the front derailleur can come in contact with the rear tire when dropouts
    will be set full front. because of the down pull lever on it .(which is not used)
    Is there anyone using a front derailleur, and having the same problem?
    Thank you
    Benny

    Truth. I was looking at the cable routing prepping to convert mine to 1x9 and thought man I should just leave it SS instead of zip tie-ing cables to cables.
    But if you close your eyes it becomes so easy to see

    It was muddy
    The down pull arm of the front derailleur was a hell of a mud collector
    Needs to chop off!!!

    Both the N9 and the Yelli were designed to chop off the arm on the FD.
