What is the maximum chainring spread for the xtr front derailleur? I would like to put a 54 or 55 up front with three chainrings. Can it handle a 55 44 36?

Responded on

Shimano recommends not to go over the spread of 22 teeth. With a 55t that would put you at a 33t as the smallest you could run and be within the manufacturer's recommendations.Correct.....except that Shimano states 44tooth is the largest chainring this derailleur will accommodate.
