So, I just found out that the few months I thought I had to firm up parts for an upcoming Riv-inspired Inglis/Retrotec custom is a little shorter than that. When I got a call last week, it was to inform me that I was #2 on the build list, and #1 wasn't returning calls. Sounds like I need to figure out a few things in short order!
I want to run a Silver 42/28 crankset but not sure what to use for front shifting duties. I've used a Suntour Cyclone to shift a 28/45/50 in the past but am not sure that's the best option. Maybe a derailleur intended for MTB use would be better? The key other criteria I can think of are that I would prefer at least some shiny parts. Pure black modern components are a non-starter. I will have either an XT or XTR on the rear, both with a mix of black and silver, so a little mix on the front is OK. I'm going to be shifting with Microshift thumbies. They use friction on the front, so no worries about indexing. It's just a question of which derailleur is most likely to move the chain in the smoothest way. Any suggestions? Thanks all!
