I think the industry says that this does not work (MT bike shifters pull more cable then road bike shifters) but I seem to remember some people saying that they had done it and it works. Anyone here that has done it?
I've got two FD's that I picked up used. A XT M761A and a Dura-ace 7803 (triple). The D.A looks so much simpler and sleek. It's also around half the weight of the XT so I would really prefer to use it. I guess (when I get the rest of the parts that I need) I could just give it a try and see, I thought I would ask here and see if anyone thinks it'll work ok. If everyone say's "forget it, it won't work" then I'll just go with the anvil, ah, XT.
