Can you take the front derail braze on mount off of a tcr comp frame in order to use a clamp on fd? I don't want to buy a new fd if I don't have to and I noticed the braze on adapter pictured is bolt on.
Yes you can take it off, but why would you want to? People spent a ton of time and money designing that frame, there's a reason it's a bolt on not a clamp on. Don't McGuyver a great frame.
The reason being is that I just bought a brand new record carbon clamp on FD for my other bike and was hoping I could use it without compromising the frame in any way. I definetely don't wanna McGuyver the frame...I didn't even like that show!
