    Scott Genius 740 2013 Gone double cranks

    Hi all, I've just installed a double chain ring crankset.
    Bike is now 11-36 rear and 24-38 front rings.
    The problem with the Genius is I cannot seem to adjust the
    front mech, so I can lower slighter for better alignment.
    I would love any in put please. Emailed Scott, and sent a message
    on Facebook, But nothing back as yet.

    The direct mount front derailleur is a different P/N for the triple and the double. You will need to buy a new derailleur.

    Look for one with this description:

    "Shimano XT M785 2x10-Speed E2 Direct Mount Front Derailleur"
    Race Reports, PreRide Reports, and General Rambling:

    Brand new Xt 2x Double fitted, 10 minute job. Plus it runs super sweet.

    38-24 front rings and a 36-11 rear, a sweet setup for my riding and the

    area in and around Yorkshire uk.

    should have been the oem-set-up
    but the Swiss still love triples
    modded mine towards 2x10 as well
