I think you're after m570 bits?

Pretty sure I've got your front mech, cost me either £12 or £16 from what I can remember, I'll try to remember to check it this afternoon but it's my Birthday weekend so feel free to remind me! 34.9 I think.


i've found a front mech that fits - but its a deore 511 i think - dual pull - the cable on my frame feeds from the top.
Image - it'll do for now, but would rather have LX - it will need to sit like this on the frame. i think im after LX 571 - i think thats what i saw on the back of my crank arm...???!!! the arms are splined - i think this is different ot octalink yes?
my knowledge is very limited when it comes to anything other than square taper! im treading new ground here! :P :oops: :?

also, Happy Birthday :)

I have a set of the blue LX V's that you seek in good condition (removed from my 99 GT i-drive shortly after purchase) and the sti units to go with them (still attached in fact) also blue and in decent condition. I can get some pics, but it will be tomorrow.

Let me know if you're interested, I'd do you a good deal on the whole lot as it will save me taking them apart. ;)

Thank you! 8)

m571, top pull, high band, 34.9mm, mint - result! How's £15posted sound?

Shimano splined cranks will be Octalink (there's two versions, but V1 is fairly rare for m952 XTR and some road cranks, you'll need the more common V2 - ES50/51/70/71 BBs), others brands used ISIS, and there're probably more 'standards' out there... Pretty sure I ran my LX m57* octas on either a 113 or 116 BB - can't be totally certain, sorry, but if it was me I'd gamble on a 113 for starters as I'm fairly sure... :lol:

The Great Sheldon Brown is your friend in all such matters :wink:

Cracking good brakes from that groupset too, nearly flipped a bike first ride out on them recently! :shock: :lol:

Pretty sure the LX octalink cranks used a much longer bottom bracket than 113mm - I've used a 121 x 73 & a 121 x 68 on mine & still end up witha 45mm chainline on one of my frames!

Checked this morning & my cranks are LX m572 ( bulging out type blue grey octalink), chainline is the dimension from middle chainring to centre of seat tube - MTB's work on 50mm (so mtb front mechs won't work at 45mm as the mech will rub on the chain in lowest gears), road mechs work at 45mm. Defo been using a 121mm bottom bracket - chain reaction are doing the ES25 121 x 68 for £6 at the moment!

Will have a set of lx m570 wheels up for grabs soon - hubs & free hub in excellent condition, built onto black Sun Rims - (0 degrees lite according to the stickers), rear rims is quite worn on the braking surface & I only have some mismatched skewers £30 posted - any good to you?
