I have decided to keep this 15" Trek 950,and sell my 1993 Trek 930 (13") despite the 13" having a 3/4' lower standover.I just like the lugged frame with monotone paint more than the blended 2 tone 930 with triple butted OX II tubing(vs double butted OXII on the 950).
The front derailleur that came with it sure seems to pull from the bottom.It matches the rea LX Deore derailleur just fine, but I don't see anywhere to screw attach a cable guide, and I don't see a print from a clamp on cable guide.
1)Was it the original derailleur? Doesn't seem it could be??
2)If original how does it work-am I missing something?
The guy I got it from was just going to bring it back in service,so he might very well have found a matching looking ft derail,and didn't notice the bottom pull problem.No stones at him-he didn't make any originality claims,and I don't give a "heck" about originality on a bike like this anyway.I bought it to play with/fix,and sell to a local student for maybe $180 or so.
PS I used this -CV)rather than MTB forum, because there are more older folks here,and it is "that"sort of question.I was out of biking from 1982-2000-so I missed these originally.
The first picture-not good-is the bottom of the BB-it is supposed to show no screw holes.By the way,what is the boss with the 8 mm head screw in it??I have no idea?
