Can I install sram xo 2x10 low direct mount-s3 front derailleur to a scott genius 920 carbon frame 2014

I am changing over the drivetrain on the scott genius 920 2014 from xt/slx to sram xo. I have all the xo parts 2x10 which I am transferring onto this bike. the only problem is that my direct mount front derailleur will not fit due to the mounting on the frame. I have researched that the shimano front derailleur (shimano SLX FD-M670-A-E/DM) is an e2 fit. Can I fit a the sram xo 2x10 low direct mount-s3 front derailleur? If not could you please advise what sram front derailleur I could use. My crank size is 26x39 2x10 120BCD. Kind Regards, Jamie

SOURCE: Hi, I have a 30T bigring

We don't stock anything but advice.

Do they have Google where you live? Or a Local Bicycle Shop? Or online shopping which makes physical locations moot? "UK" doesn't narrow it down much.

When shopping for a front derailleur you need to know several things: braze-on or clamp mount; if clamp, seat tube diameter; top pull, bottom pull.

The front derailer on my sram red compact just wont change quick!


Which brand of shifters are you using? A SRAM derailleur won't work with Shimano shifters and vice-versa.

So - first; if you are using SRAM shifters with the Red derailleur - then changing to Shimano will not solve your issue but only make it worse.

If however you have Shimano shifters - then this is a good solution.
The Red derailleur should not shift that poorly with SRAM shifters. It is not the best - but it's not bad. If I had the bike in a repair stand I would be looking carefully at the following after affirming that the shifting system was indeed all SRAM:


  • Derailleur cage height relative to the large chanring - should be a maximum of 2 mm
  • Derailleur cage should be aligned as close to parallel to the rings as possible
  • Derailleur upper and lower limit screws should be adjusted within spec and in order to allow the derailleur to travel the correct amount for ideal shifting
  • Derailleur cable tension should be correct.


Hope this helps... Let me know if you need more.

On my ROAD bike could a Sram/Truvati XX or XO (crankset 42/28-cassette11/36) work smoothly with Sram red doubletap Thank you.


To use Sram Red Shifters with such a wide range rear cassette requires a Sram 10-speed MTB rear derailleur such as an XX or X.0, it will work without problems with your red shifter.

Because it is a road bike, i suggest leaving the road crankset and front derailleur in place. If you need low gearing I suggest a compact front crankset.

If you need to use a mtb crankset, attept to use the road front derailluer with it.

Hi Everyone! I have a Shimano 5603 Hollowtech 2 triple chainring.......(10 Speed) I want to add a Utlegra 6600 front derailleur and Ultegra 6600 rear derailleur. Also 10 speed cassette, Ultegra...


No -

If you are going to use the front triple crankset, then you need to use the 6603 components. These are for Triple set-ups.

If you intend to keep your bike a triple, then everything in the drivetrain must be the triple designation, hence the XX03.

If you want to change the crankset to a compact, then you can use the 6600 (double) equipment, but you will need to change the left (front shifter) to a double as well. The compact crankset, will give you virtually the same range as the triple and be much lighter and shift better.

The cassette: You can use any 10 spd cassette from Shimano or SRAM as long as the rear cog is no larger than 27. if you want to use a larger cog like a 28, then you will have to use the 6700 group, assuming yoiu want to stay with shimano ultegra.

Final Note: Since you are chainging everything, you may want to consider the SRAM Apex group, this gives you more gear ratio than the Ultegra, is slightly less expensive and around the same weight. Great alternative to Triple bikes.

Parts you will need to convert:
Rear Derailleur
Front Derailleur (if changing to compact double or Apex)
Chain
Shifter set (if Apex)
Crankset (if Apex or compact shimano)
Bottom Bracket (if Apex)

The biggest thing is that Shifters and rear derailleur must be from the same company (shimano, SRAM, etc.) after that just make sure that yoiu use 10spd with 10spd, 9 with 9, and so on. Everything else can mix and match.

You might have to consider changing your bottom bracket for one with a longer shaft. Examine your chain line and do some research here:http://www.parktool.com/ and also here:http://sheldonbrown.com/gearing/index.html

Gears not changing quickly enough. and then changing 10 to 15 seconds later after clicking shifter . when they eventually change they seem to thud down the cassette . no promblems putting them back up the...


Two things to this problem.
1. Clean your drivetrain REALLY, REALLY thoroughly with a good degreaser and a bristled brush. All of it. Clean the derailleurs, the chain, the cables. Once it is all cleaned up and dried off, lubricate the chain and the cables ONLY.
2. Shift your bike into the highest gear and release the cable. Pull it taut and re-tighten it. Flip it over and shift into your middle cassette cog while cranking the pedals. Use the barrel adjuster on your rear shifter to get the jockey wheel on the cassette aligned over the correct cog.
This was an abridged guide to rear derailleur adjustment because it sounds like it was more grunge in the cable or derailleur than anything else, but i'll check back and if this solution doesn't work out, i'll give you tips on a far more thorough overhaul. Just remember a clean drivetrain is a functional drivetrain, and the cables and chain are the only thing you are supposed to lube.

Hope this helps,
matt

Chain rubs inner front derailleur while in lowest gear.


on front derailleurs there should be two small cross head screws one has L(lower) next to it the other has H(higher), you will need a cross head srewdriver, you simply losten or tighten the 2 screws and it will adjust the position of the derailleur to your crankset and it that completely fails then you might need to try a different crankset
