I can't remember where I read something about the FD being the least important bike component.
I think there are some FDs that are really nice looking- the 1st generation Cyclone GT- beautiful. The Mountech- it looks tough and , and it's light, way lighter than it looks. The XC Pro/Comp- cool looking and light. I really also dig the Shimano Z206. It looks very "polite," as it if it would go fine on a relatively fancy bike- but still handles triples. It was on all kinds of bikes from Trek's 400 line to the Voyageur.
