...i dimly recall the Spirt's mechanics are inverted - the spring 'relaxes' the cage onto the big ring.

if that's correct, surely the Symmetric shifter auto-trim function will send the FD in the wrong direction?

And an unknown(at the monment)fd. I'd like to put a Suntour Spirt on it, but I don't know if they shift three rings. I guess there is one way to find out.
