    Might as well be underwater because I make less drag than a torpedoE (no aero bars here though)

    ultegra 10 front derailleur

    I've read in the road forum (not the best source of accurate info...LOL) that the new ultregra 10 FD requires a flat area ("dent") in the seat tube in order to work properly.

    I never heard of such a thing.

    Haha....Is there any truth to this?

    Nope. Least not as far as the bikes I've seen with stock Ultegra 10 are concerned.

    Some frames with fat seattubes do require a indent in the frame for clearance,but this was before the ultegra 10. Someone has obviously been smoking carpet.

    Didn't the old Teledyne Ti frame have a recessed "ring" where the FD was to be mounted?

    Boy, I'm really dating myself on that one!
