    what kind of derraileur (sp) do i need?

    i have a trek 6000 from 1999 (maybe?). it has an acera front der. and a LX back der. I want to replace the front der., what type do i need? bottom pull? top pull? braze-on? i am confused.. would it be worth it to bring it to the LBS and have them replace the front der. and re-cable the shifting cables (they are getting sketchy)?

    The best thing to do would to buy a Deore Front Mech, they fit all seat tube widths, work on top or bottom pull systems etc..... and they're quite decent bits of kit too.
    Sold!! To the lady with the blonde hair and skimpy underwear
