I did some searching here and on the net looking for an answer, but so far it has eluded me.
Road vs Mountain front mechs...I realize the obvious difference between some cages, but this is not related to that.
If you have a Shimano Road type triple FD, is the cable pull the same as an off road FD.
If the road FD's have two different cable pull requirements, what model Road FD's can work properly with Off Road shifters. Is there one set of years that have short pull while later ones have a longer pull like the mtb.
Goal is to make a front twist shifter for off road work with the road FD triple, just doesn't require near as much twisting to make the shifts.
