I'm working on a bike that the previous owner put a mishmash of parts
on. I'm having particular problems getting the front shifting to work,
and before wasting more time, thought I'd see if this combination is
Front shifter -- a Dura Ace ST-7703 triple shifter (9-speed, I
Front derailleur -- a Shimano 600 double (sorry, don't have the model
number at hand).
Front crank -- Shimano FC-MC19, 42-tooth large ring (also with 9-speed
The curve of the derailleur cage doesn't match the curve of the large
ring very well, but what seems a bigger problem is that there doesn't
seem to be enough throw in the shifter to carry the derailleur from
small to large ring.
Will this combination work?
