Flat bar road bike, MTB shifter for the front derailleur?
I am converting a road frame thatīs slightly too big for me into a flat bar.
Set up is to be 3x8, all the bits are waiting to go on.
The LH shifter came off a wrecked commuter bike with a top pull triple front derailleur.
I want to run it with a standard īroadī down pull triple front derailleur as the frame doesnīt have any top tube or seat tube cable stops, and thatīs the only FD I have lying around.
Will it work?
Thanks in advance. I searched but couldnīt find anything specific.
