    Yeah, I put one of those derailleurs with spacers on my husbands LHT. No spacers at the co-op so I thought I would give what they had a try.

    Big ring has 42, small has 24. So, what do you think the odds of a bottom pull derailleur working? I can go to the coop and try some used ones out, so I don't have to order without trying.
