Alpina Front Derailleur
Same performance level as the CD, but designed for triples. Will work with standard road triple cranks, but it is optimized for smaller rings such as 48-36-24t or 50-36-30t.
• Braze-on style, but this includes an adapter clamp for 28.6, 31.8 or 34.9mm.
• Two models:
Alpina-d is designed to work better with Shimano's drop bar/STI shifters.
Alpina-f is designed to work better with Shimano's flat bar road shifters.
When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
