I am running a 2x9 on a 29er using the granny (22 or 24) and big middle ring (36 or 38). I'd like to lower the Deore front der but the cage does not allow it due to hitting on the chainstay if it goes lower. Could I cut the bottom part of the cage off so I can lower the der to be more in line with big ring? My concern is that the cage is riveted together and cutting it would separate them. Would this cause a problem or would it work OK for a 2x9 application.
