Hi I bought a Jack frame and have built it up - bought an Alivio front mech but then it wont fit due to the acute angle of the downtubes. There is lots of weld that stops it sliding down far enough to get the right clearance between the mech and the teeth. I note now that Dahon use a microshift item and that the collar must be higher up the body on that but could someone please tell me the exact model of Microshift mech?
