Suntour AR FD Range
I asked about this over in C&V but did'nt get any response, so....
I'm finishing up an overhaul on my Sekai 2500 Grandtour and am having an issue engaging the big ring with the FD. Bike appears to be stock with an add on triple and the Suntour AR is designed for a double. It will engage when the chain is on the outer half of the freewheel but it does'nt seem to be to happy about transfering over.
I'm thinking a shorter BB spindle might solve the problem as it looks like there is plenty of clearance between the small ring and the chain stay (about 6mm). Otherwise, what would be a suitable replacement, something that matches up well aesthetically with the Suntour ARX RD? Or, any other suggestions are welcome.
