Hopefully a really dumb question!

I have been hoping to buy an M6000 2 x setup.

Wiggle have all the parts, but the front mech is always 3 x.

I believe the shifters are both 2 and 3 x, but I need a specific front mech surely?

Not sure what I am missing, but hope it's simple!

Thanks in advance.

Is it the M6020 that's the double? (Thanks Google)

Thanks, I struggled with google, kept getting an older mech or the 3 x.

That looks perfect. I need to work out which attachment I need now!

Am I right that I can use the same shifters on 2 or 3 x?

I am still surprised the 2 x isn’t the easiest to find.

Don’t lots of hybrids still have triples?

Thanks for the help. Glad it was so simple!

Hoping to keep the double crankset and rear cassette, but need new mechs and shifters.

Also creaking a bit so a new BB possibly.
