Seems that this is a roadie set-up. Can I make this work on a mountain bike?

Cheers

It doesn't look like a road setup. Its got bolt holes for a small chainring.

If it is road (130mm) you can by an FSA conversion chainring and make it 2X9. I've done one thats 42X30 and it works ok.

Thanks for the input. Maybe I could fit them to a future ultralight racer. I figure the bike would have to be a featherweight if I've got no granny gear!

cheers

Watch the one missing bolt, you can not find the correct replacements.
