My bike came with a low grade shimano front derailleur that translates to poor performance on the trail. Rest of the bike is sram x-4 which works fine for my occasional weekend warrior mtbing. However, I want to replace that pos but I've never done it b4 so here are the specs.
31.8 clamp size, 24/34/42, triple, bottom pull
Need some suggestions. Thinking a sram x5 will do the trick?
Minus indexing, lots of FD's work fine, the cable pull length per click,
as translated to sideways motion of the shifting cage,
is a roulette wheel if mix and of manufacturer's parts
throws in a couple variables..
So in that regard, no SIS, meaning, indexed,.. Not !, .. is a benefit.
