Used about 4 times - now found out I had the wrong front mech, had to buy another model.

£20 posted.
Can you post up a picture of the pully side? The XT i ran on the Inbred is supposed to be dual pull but dosn't seem to be compatible with my frame which is bottom pull (or i'm just stupid and can't figure it out :B) so just wondering if it's the same.
Here you go... Its is defintily top and bottom pull compatible.


Still a bit grubby from BBH as it went straight to LBS afterwards, will clean up to show it is brand spanking new.
Wow that was quick! So on a bottom pull frame dose the cable go straight in from the bottom, and top pull goes round the arm and through the bottom too, if that makes any sense :B
Top pull goes straight to the screw fixture - doesnt pass GO or collect £200.

Bottom pull goes through the channel and 2 nodules (see picture 1) just above the left hand siver bolt, around then into the screw fixture.

So essentially, the reverse of what you are thinking.
This may help side on view.....

Ok cheers mate. I'll have another look at mine to see if i can do the same with that, if not i'll buy yours.
Sorry Ben, mine is dual pull. I can't use top swing mech's anyway as the suspension linkage is in the way. Good luck with the sale.
