Shifting ? - Front Derailleur(1 post)

Shifting ? - Front Derailleurmtnb1kr
May 6, 2003 9:17 AM
I am trying to install a set of 8sp 105 sti shifters on a friends bike. The dilemma is the front shifter doesn't seem compatable with the FR derailleur. It was paddle style shifting and the front derailleur is a 105 draze-on. However instead of the parallel assembly being at a 90 degree angle to the drive train it's at a 45. In other words the derailleur seems to move forward as it moves up. I haven't seen one like this before. Is this derailleur the problem?
