i have a XTR front Mech with a 34,9 clamp and It has to go on a 28,6 tube. So i need those little things to make it fit. Does anybody have a set for me?

an other possibility would be a swap of mechs. I need a 28,6 XTR M950/1/2 downpull front mech. I can swap my 34,9 XTR mech or i do have other swaps.

please help me.

Can you not use like... an old cateye shim?
I have a 31.8 bp mech if it helps get things sized down for you.

I've always just went into a bike shop and asked if they have any. They often let you have them for nothing or very little as they tend to have them around the place from fitting new mechs to customers bikes.
