Braze or Clamp Fron Derailleur
I'm thinking of upgrading my 2004 Litespeed Solano to Ultegra 10. It came with ultegra 9.
My questions regard the front derailleur. It has what appears to be a braze-on derailleur with an oversize clamp. The best I can tell with my crappy calipers is that the seat tube measures about 34.9mm.
1) Is it in fact a braze-on derailleur with an oversize clamp?
2) Can I buy a braze-on FD-6600-F and use the existing clamp, or do I need to go with the FD-6600-B that comes with a 34.9 clamp?
