The mcfk is 8 vs 18g and it's way nicer looking. You have to get a special order of a 12mm version, they come in 15mm high standard and over hang the frame and crack.
I links won't work for the brakes but the minis will work fine for shifting and you should be able to cable tie em together to reduce rattling.
The rear shift cable is pretty long. I only took a few cm off the cable when I cut it!
The dog fang has been drilled out, had the band cut down and a nylon bolt and nut fitted
And the frame bung...
I got a couple of spares from Parlee and slotted em with a razor blade. Then after installing I wrapped it with plumbers tape to lock in the cables and increase the interference fit.
The frame is really designed for electric, most high end frames are these days.
Fitting mech is always a bit of a compromise
