This coming Saturday FEBRUARY 2nd at midday. Outside Mud Dock. Setting up your own stall is FREE. Moutain bike, roadie, retro gear. All are welcome. Should be a giggle.

Top pull braze-ons are a bugger to find but I'll keep me eyes open. Granny suck eggs moment-have you tried a cable reverser and a bottom pull?

Cheers A_S. Never seen a clamp on version of one of those before, only the one attached to the frame. If anyone can find a bottom pull suitable for the above bike I will get one of those gizmos.

Thanks again!

Never mind. Thanks to you posting the link my chances of getting a working solution have increased tenfold. I wonder if a road triple would work? I might invest in a 'speculative Tiagra' and try it!

Nope. Not enough range.
