Shimano front derailleurs
Need to replace a Shimano FD 7800 32mm(ish) band on, for a 9 x 2 road bike.
I have 7700 Brifters.
I would like to save some money by buying a cheaper model.
I have spent hours searching and I am completely lost and confused by all the Shimano models.
Can anyone advise on a suitable Shimano model please.
Ultegra: FD-6500 (not available in 31.8)
105: FD-5500 or FD-5501
For each of these you must specify a 31.8mm clamp or get the braze-on model and the SM-AD11 31.8mm clamp adapter.

Basically, ANY Shimano or SRAM road front derailleur should work EXCEPT the latest Dura Ace, Ultegra, or 105 models (7900, 6700, or 5700).
Oh thanks guys, what a fantastic fast responce. I am very much obliged.
