Hi,

I'm starting to put the zaskar together however the bottom pull mech (m950) that i have seems to be out of line to the BB cable guide resulting in cable rub.

The mech seem totally out of line to run neatly from below.

Its like the cable guide on the mech is on the wrong side.

I thought this year of zaskar le had the m950 group set out of the factory so it should fit :?:

Are there more than one type of bottom pull m950?

Noob error or wrong mech? :P

maybe the 'dual pull' version has better routing.

I have only ever seen two types, top and bottom.

im hoping someone else is use the full m950 group set and can advise. However looking at pictures of other zaskars / m950 setups no one seem to use a m950 front mech

Perhaps the zaskar never came with the m950/952 group set!

Can you wrap the cable over the top from the other side?

I've got a dual pull and I'm struggling to figure out how to thread the cable on my 95 Zaskar.

M950 is 8 speed so would doubt it.

Are we sure its a down pull mech?

Its defo m950.

I can not see how it could be top pull with out wraping the cable around the mech. It works from down pull perfectly however the cable rubs on the frame.

Really strange!

Anyone have any pictures of a dual pull?
