    Fix that Cdale...

    The E-type FD works so well with Prophet that you can't adjust it as on any other bike . You have to adjusted it with a shock in sag (by riding it I guess?) or with the frame in FR position. I guess that means do not shift while in air?


    If the FD loosens up and pivots up just few mm, down shifting to the smallest ring just stops working. I did not want to tighten the screw so much that I could cause any damage to the frame so I J-B WELDed the two FD parts that may and did come loose on me couple times. Thanks Shimano for such ingenious design!

    Pictures explain the process of "welding".

    Why couldnt they just put a regular style clamp derailleur like they did on the rush?

    I think it can be done and some may have experienced with it. E-type FD protects the frame from the chain so there is one advantage over classic FD.

    It shifts like never before. I am in love with my bike again.

    Well worth the effort for extra security.
