The last time I searched for this, I got a trojan horse from socalriders.org. Anyway, I would like to know, if you have a Nashbar touring frame and Shimano STX-RC MC41 rapidfire shifters, would it take either a top swing or bottom swing front derailleur? I can't even understand the explanation on the sheldon brown website.
And what in the world is a Shimano FD-MC17? I looked at this site: http://datenbanken.freepage.de/traut/SHIMANO.html and can't even find it. Well, I looked but didn't see it. Is it really Deore? Does anyone know if it's compatible with an 8 speed setup?
