Front derailer stand off issue - cant fit tires
Ok, I am having what I suppose is a unique issue. I have a gary fisher KaiTai hybrid, and bought some 29er tires for it for some light trail riding. Well, everything fit, except for the front derailer. The Derailer is a Shimano C101 derailer, top pull type. The actuating body of the derailer stands off roughly 1 1/4" from the back of the seat tube, and the tire is just slightly rubbing it. I am wondering if there are any shimano top pull type derailers that have a smaller standoff, or maybe have the bulk of the actuator to the side? Maybe a road front derailer??? Just trying to see if there is any option.
