    Big Dummys and Shimano

    I'm aware that some part of Shimano RDs hit some part of the dummy frame. Has anyone tried using a Wolf Tooth Roadlink to move a Shimano shadow plus derailleur away from the frame?

    My frame is a 2009 or so, whenever the OD green swoops were a thing but I don't think the dropouts changed.
    You change your own flats? Support your LBS and pay them to instead.

    Someone in the Big Dummy fb group said they used a Goat Link and got it to work. I'll try with a Roadlink since I have two sitting around.

    Some of the shadow plus derailleurs also interfere a tiny bit with the Surly Pugsley dropouts; one of my old coworkers just barely filed the derailleur so that it would clear the frame while still keeping a good b-tension for shifting. If I can unpack that derailleur in the next day or so, I'll try to snap a photo.

    It may be completely wrong and irrelevant to your situation given the different dropout designs, but I figured it couldn't hurt to mention.
