    SRAM X-Gen on Jamis XLT 3.0 - quick question...

    (I just put this in general discussion forum and realized it probably belongs here...sorry!)



    Need some help from the crowd on this one, guys.

    I've recently built up a new Jamis XLT 3.0 frame and would like to run a SRAM X-Gen front derailleur. I've had great luck with them in the past year....anyways...

    With the derailleur mounted and shifted on the granny, the inside plate of the derailleur is dangerously close to the lower rear suspension pivot. I'm talking like 2-3mm. I think this is due to the tall bottom-swing design of the X-gen.

    Is anyone out there running an X-Gen on a Jamis XLT? If so, any problems with the suspension hitting the inner plate when in the granny?

    I've also noticed rub on the cross-link (the ass-end of the derailleur cage) - the part that connects the 2 cage plates. This only happens with the derailleur on granny and on rear cogs 5-9 (the smaller ones) or so. I could easily fix it by lowering the derailleur a few mm, but this would make my first problem even worse.

    Suggestions appreciated.

    Thanks!!
