I’m looking to change my front mech from a top swing to a conventional swing mech on my hardtail, the reason being is the cable locking bolt is in a place where i can’t get to it to tighten the cable.
Hence i have a spare lx mech off my other bike which is conventional, can anyone foresee any issues setting it up if i do this.

If you mean what I think you mean, then provided that you have a channel under the bottom bracket and a longer cable, should be OK.

Cheers Steve i see what you mean about the channel under the BB, i don’t have one so i’ve now sussed why the mech wasn’t working properly in the first place – the barrel adjuster on my gear lever had snapped causing loose cable so its a new gear lever and the old mech back on but still have to suss why the cable bolt is hard to get to
