considering buying an ibis mojo, and want to run 2x10 gearing and a 39/26 front chainset, however ive heard this not possible to due to limitations sram front deraillers. surely if you can runn 22t granny ring on a mojo the a 26t should not be a problem or am i missing something???

thanks

    An important note for those of you choosing to run SRAM XX on your Mojo: the Mojo cannot run the 26/39 chainring configuration due to positioning limitations with the front derailleur. 28/42 OK! 26/39 not OK! It will however support the 156Q factor crank without issue
