    Front derailleur Question

    I've got an XT front derailleur that is a 31.8 in size, and my bike requires a 28.6. Is there some sort of spacer I can get for this derailleur? Or should I just sell it on ebay and get the right sized one.

    Thanks

    Shimano stopped making smaller derailleurs for the most part. I'm pretty sure they include spacers on all new ones so you can size down.

    Alternately, you can do the half-assed cut up innertube solution. I've done it on several bikes w/o any problems.
