Glad it worked! Happy braking.

Small update on my 11 speed mods. Not perfect yet but I can confirm an XT 11 speed M8000 Shadow rear mech fits well. It has a shorter cage than the older XT trekking mech it replaces so ground clearance actually increases.

Most importantly it doesn't foul the fold, when folded some of the slack in the chain does lay over the top of the mech body so it's going to scratch but that's what heli tape is for. Mechs are going to get scratched anyway. Once I build up my post count I'll post a piccy or 2.

Currently have the clutch switched off as I hate the feel of the shift under it,
