I cocked up with the front mech I ordered for the Craftworks. What I ordered was a bog-standard Deore mech which is a top-swing type, when what I needed was a conventional mech. The low clamp on the Deore fouls the rear suspension pivots, and is likely to get ripped off on the first big compression. So it’s Chain Reaction to the rescue, and I’ve just ordered an XT front mech to fit (34.9mm clamp, bottom pull, conventional high-clamp).
