The FD-M970 is supplied with two reducer shims, is one of them (probably the 31.8mm shim) still attached in place?
I don't really want to damage the paint on this frame as it's got one of the custom paint jobs on it. I'll try and take a picture.zebrahum said:Very strange, can you measure the seat tube diameter and make sure the sizing is correct? How much are you missing by? Sometimes you'll have to mar the paint a bit in order to get it to fit properly. It will press on if you're just a bit off. Pictures may be helpful at that point, I'd like to say "hold your bike up to the internet so I can talk to it" but I don't think it will work.
