Is there an inherent difference in where a FD will fall laterally with respect to the chainrings when you compare a clamp on FD and a braze on FD with clamp adapter?
I have a braze on 9 spd FD w/ clamp adapter (older Shimano 600) and a Ultegra double 10 speed crank. The crank, chainrings + chain are the only 10spd components, everything else is 9 spd. It works fine, except I really need the FD to move inward towards the bike another 1/8" or so to get it centered properly and noiseless. I've adjusted the limit screw to allow it to come in as close as possible. At this point, it's just the geometry of the 4 bar parallel linkage preventing it from moving closer.
Will a clamp on 9 spd derailleur have any effect? (get rid of braze on + clamp adapter)
Does the 9spd vs 10 spd make any difference? I wouldn't think so, but maybe I'm missing something...
thanks a ton!
