I am setting up a cross frame as commuter bike for my wife with a MTB triple drivetrain and flat bar. The frame is a Gunnar crosshairs with under BB cable routing. She prefers the SRAM twist type shifters. This will be 9s with a triple front (probably) 44/32/22 crankset.
Too many types of FDs out there!!! What type of FD do we need? I am thinking a top mount, down swing, bottom pull. Is that correct?
Thanks for the help.
(Please don't suggest that a compact double, road triple, drop bar, etc.... would be better for her. It might be, but it isn't what she wants.....She wants a bike that is light and agile like a road bike, but geared low like her MTB).
