Indeed David, I forgot about the whole thing with the pulley behind the
seat tube. I had a nightmare trying to change from an old deore FD
to a Veloce one, first working out how you were supposed to get it
to work, then finding one of the little pulley wheels.
DMR do a clamp-on pulley widget called a Mechverter which is useful, doesn't look as neat as the factory-fitted pulleys that, say, some Alans have.
Not obvious in the pic, but my Fort has a tension adjuster on the head tube and the usual cable route under the BB shell. No reliability issues really as it isn't often used in a race situation (things are usually too much of a hard slog for me to even think about shifting from the 36T ring up to the 46T one....).
