We have just had our tandem refurbished by a well known frame restorer. We tried to get a triple chainwhell working and welded a bracket onto the curved down tube.

However, we cannot get consistent operation. We are using Shimano changers, which although state they can cope with the size of rings, doesn't seem to have enough cage length to lift the chain onto the outer ring. Excluding the fact the bracket may not be in the right place - has anyone solved this problem and if so, which front changer did they use?

Thanks for any help.
