    Raceface Atlas FR Cranks

    I've just been looking at the fitting instructions for these and seen this

    X systems for use on 100mm BB shells are not compatible with triple ring or double ring plus bashguard assemblies with front derailleurs. They are designed solely for use with single ring plus chainguide system assemblies only.
    There are then other instruction regarding spacers which repeat this point.

    Funny that they ship the 100mm BB version with double and bash then.


    So - ignore? If so, what type of derailleur should I be looking at (it's a 2012 907)?

    Any of the E-type will work, that's what I use with my double and bash.
    Or go for direct mount with problem solvers adaptor

    Is the alfine not working out?

    I'm just not too happy with the gearing. I thought I'd try another option, using the cranks I already have. I have spare shifters and bought a short cage shadow mech.
    Ison are doing pre-built Drilled RD/XT hubbed wheels at the moment too......

    The 907 has the fitting for the E-type, so no Problem Solver required (I think).

    Nice.
    Yes, the E type should work fine, just remove 1 of the drive side spacer on the BB & fit the derailleur.I have no problems with my set up since fitting.

    That's what I though - just put off a little by the Raceface instructions :-)
