Hi Gang,

What have I done wrong: the front der will rub the rear tyre when I try to engage the big chain ring.

This doesn't make sense as Tom sells the Swiss Cross as a complete bike with the Ultegra 2X groupset.

Frame: Swiss Cross.
Rim: Stans Crest MkIII rim
Tyre: Clemant LAS 33c wide
Der: Ulterga
FD6800 2X11

Ta

It's a common issue. With the 2x, the long arm of the Shimano FD and wider tires don't plan nice. You might be able to get it with fine tuning of the cable adjustment and limit screw. There was a very small window of success when I was running 2x and 40mm tires.

The newest Dura Ace FD uses a design without the long arm and presumably the upcoming Ultegra will too which will be a good solution. That's what I'll do if I run 2x again.
