I'm thinking about using Dura-Ace on my MTB, but it's top pull. Any thoughts?

I have never seen a top pull road bike, however I have seen MTB's with a pulley mounted on the seat tube to alter the pull direction. A bit of bodging with a band-on front mech support and a stem pulley might work....

Cross bikes are top pull so a mech that works there would obviously be fine and I've seen Dura Ace used for cross so.....

Nope... cross bikes use a pulley system.

What's wrong with XT-R?? It designed for Mtb's and it looks sexy too.
