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.
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!
also, Happy Birthday
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
The Great Sheldon Brown is your friend in all such matters
Cracking good brakes from that groupset too, nearly flipped a bike first ride out on them recently!
