Ello all,

I'm in the process of spec'ing up a build for my new 456 evo 2 frame and need some clarification as to what mechs I can fit.

How much gear cable outer casing do i need to run full lengths to the front and rear mech? (frame is 20" btw)

Lastly, does a 36th chainring fit up front ok with a 2x9 setup? I've read it might catch and cause chainsuck.

Thanks in advance :)

Here's what you need:

34.9 top pull front derailleur
3 meters of gear cable housing (you may be able to get away with 2, but get 3 to be safe)
36T chainring will be fine and have no problems clearing the frame unless the chainline of the driveside crank is offset
