er..... just in anticipation. I have no idea whether this requires a special top-pull or even whether I need a "band-on" front mech...

Ideas?

i thought you knew this ..
you need a special mech to fit that
it has no clamp , it has a plate that bolts in to a rectangular recess with two bolts

if you check the red one on e bay at the mo it has two included in the sale

and a good pic of the recess ..

SORRY JEZ IT WAS THE KIRK I WAS LOOKING AT ( head up my arse today ) although it does look like there is a recess

you probably bolt a piece of metal and braze the mech .

you probably need a roadie version , or an old mavic .

just think how nice the Betsy would look on that . :wink:
