    Any final word on whether Push rockers need a SRAM Front Derailleur?

    I called Push today and ordered the new Push rockers. I asked Jimmy if I needed to lose my LX front derailleur and buy a SRAM Front derailleur. He was not sure if the LX would hit but said the XT would hit because the cage is so long. I noticed the SRAM X Gen is on sale for $20. I don't want to grind on the cage.

    Any thoughts on those who have the rockers installed?

    Thanks,

    Jaybo

    From what I understand from how the mod works, you shouldn't need to adjust FDto clear CS. But if there is a clearance issue, why can't you just move the derailler up a mm or two to clear the CS?

    It doesn't matter which brand you use, it's all about proper positioning. Deflate the shock and adjust the derailleur with the suspension bottomed out.
