Apologies if this is not the right forum, but I thought you guys/girls would be able to shed some light on my problem as I have been out of touch of modern mtbing for a long time.
I have a 2000 FSR which I am building into a 24 speed hack bike. I have a no name (sugino?) compact drive chainset from 96 which I was going to shove on it (off my old bike), but it seems that the new deore front mech I bought hasnt got enough travel to shift between big and granny rings (the bb length/chain line looks ok). Has the advent of 9 speed deore resulted in a change in chainsets to be even more compact (thinner chains etc)? I was told that new deore would fit anything, but obviously I was sucked in there! Any ideas how to get round this problem (down tube is pretty fat so none of the old mechs from my parts bin fit!)
Thanks in advance for any suggestions you have.
