    Has anyone added a front der. to Gromhit?

    Hi parents,

    Just wondering if anyone has added a front derailleur to a Gromhit. I am looking at doing this before next spring and wondering what size it would take etc. Any tips appreciated.

    What year Gromhit? I have a new Gromhit (07' Canadian model) I am giving to my son for Christmas and just went to take a look. You may be able to add a 34.9mm low clamp (Top swing) model. You will also need a cable stop since the frame I looked at does not have them. Then you could run a full length cable to the cable stop. It's kind of sketchy since the frame was not designed for it. Here is a link to a stop if you need one:

    Thanks for the reply. My son's is an 07 Canadian model as well. I haven't even looked at it yet, but wasn't sure how to measure the diameter of the seat tube. I also wasn't sure if there was room or if I needed a bottom bracket mounted derailleur.
