Front Shifting

On October 21, 2012

I have finally finished the saga of adding a third chainring to my Surly CrossCheck. After testing the new setup with the stock double front derailleur I found that it was too hard to shift into the smallest chain ring. I ordered a Shimano Tiagra front derailleur, an upgrade from the original Sora component. Heres a picture of it installed. Luckily our shop had big enough spacers to fit the rather large bracket.
