If it's a curvy frame LTS like mine http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... highlight=

You need a big, low clamp, bottom pull mech like this, http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... highlight= if no-one else has a piccy i'll post one up in the morning (not near the bike at the mo)

thanks for the photos
i cant seem to find one on crc
they are listed as top swing or convential
(does convential mean bottom pull?)
all the shimano items dont seem low enough sram do one but it wont work with shimano shifters :(

I just had a looksie on CRC, you want a 'top swing' mech but I see they only have 9 & 10 speed one's so if you're after an 8sp (slightly wider cage) you'll probably be best off putting a wanted ad on here :D

EDIT: Just found this... http://www.evanscycles.com/products/shi ... e#features Alivio 8sp multi fit should do the trick
