    You mean the position of the mech on the frame relative to the chainrings?

    I thought from his post he was talking about the trimming.

    ETap is self trimming - so I was assuming he ment the position of the mech on the tube.... I could be wrong !!

    I was discussing mechanical front mechs with Bike Shop Man. His experience was that shimano front mechs were easier to set up than SRAM front mechs.

    Ah, fair play. Thought the main drive was for you to go all Electronic! Ha ha

    I was going to say, all mechs are position sensitive

    I've always had SRAM on the MTBs and Shimano on the Road/CX bikes.I don't think there's any particular difference in setting up the front mechs!?Seems like a strange thing for a bike mechanic to say?

    I would imagine you just set it up per the manufacturers spec. Usually very clear instructions and measurements. If it doesn't work, then trial and error, its usually fairly obvious whats wrong.

    I suppose SRAM mechs do have that 'yaw' thing to do, so maybe are a bit more position sensitive.
