Mountain bike parts
I'm trying to build my self a little mountain bike to ride on the weekends.I am looking at these parts and I am not sure if these will work together or not.There is two different FD I am looking at the first one is a Shimano Tiagra 4503 and the other one is the Deore FD M591 I have a Shimano M442 crank set with 22,32,44t and I have the Deore M591 SGS long cage rear derailleur and I am also looking at the deore SL-M590 9 speed shift lever set will any of these parts work together. Or do I need to look at other parts. Thanks any info will help.
Skip the Tiagra FD and you're good, as long as your frame's design accomodates "traditional" front derailleurs where the mounting clamp is at the top, instead of down lower on the frame tube (those low-clamp ones are called "top-swing").
