I'm sorry. Normally the closest point of contact between the FD and chainrings is at the top of the chainring, but with chainrings bigger than what the FD is designed around, the curvature is different and the back, or lowest part of the cage is closer.
If you set the height at the top without checking the back, it might jam on the chainring.
