Bit of help needed from you good folks. I have been having problems setting up the front mech and finally have worked out what the problem is. The front mech is being dragged down the mech tube under use. The band is 34.9 and the carbon tube is about that or fractionally smaller. A 31.9 band is way too small so I need some idea's on what to shim the mech with that will grip the frame and not deform with time. I only need to shim by 1mm. Any idea's gratefully received.
