Very nice! I have the same set up on my Fat Chance Titanium. A great tip is because of the lack of floating top jockey wheel these derailleurs work best with titanium cassettes like actiontec or SRP rather than shimano (great excuse to spend even more money!)

Hi, i've recently bought a new 8sp shimano for this, shame on me i didn't get a Tioga Ti, anyway, as u say mate, that would make a perfect excuse to spend more money.
Thanks for the tip

You're right there, they're great as furniture as well, so i might have them mounted on an "exposition" frame in the living room :lol:
Cheers

Just managed to get a tioga ti cassette to use with my proshift, very nice :wink:

Incidently what is the biggest cog to work with a proshift? Looking at an 11-30 xtr but not sure if it will rub.
