I'm converting my Country Road Bob from fixed to geared, and I've hit a snag with the front derailleur. The bike is set up for top pull cable routing, and I have a compact double road crank along with bottom pull Dura-Ace FD. Is there a device that would allow me to use a bottom pull FD with a top pull cable routing?
I've got a spare XT FD, but the clamp diameter is too large, and I don't think it would work with a road double anyway.
There is a pully assembly for cyclocross bikes that goes at the bottom of the seatpost below the derailleur and reverses a cable coming down from above so that it goes back up into the bottom pull derailleur. The clamp will be seatpost size specific, just like an older derailleur clamp. http://cyclocrossworld.stores.yahoo....ipu34news.html look there.
