I'm using a vintage Miyata Sports runner as my backup + winter bike. Mostly for commuting (2 x 11 km/day). The original square tapered crankset finally gave up beyond fixing last week and I got a new replacement FC-MT210-3 + a MTB BB-MT800-K Bottom Bracket Hollowtech II from my neighbour.
- BB shell is 68mm wide
- My FD is: Sora 3x9
- My shifters are: Shimano XT ST-M750
I upgraded the bike with 3x9 drivetrain 2 years ago with a 3x Sora FD. It has been working perfectly fine.
I installed the new BB with the spacers according to the user guide (1 on drive side, 2 on non drive side) and installed the crankset. All fine.
The one problem I'm having is that I cannot get the FD to reach the outermost cogs.
Any ideas for how to solve it? Can I use fewer spacers? Or is the Sora FD not compatible with MTB cranksets? Or have I missed something else?
Thanks a million!
