Does such a front derailleur exist?
Can someone please help me get out of a pickle...
I am building a bike and am looking for a front derailleur with these following parameters:
28.6 clamp on
compatible with 52-42-30 crankset (and 7-speed rear)
^ Question 1) does one exist?
I have been trying to search the web in general, but it is difficult when looking for all the above at once!
I've come across a few models that come close, but they are either bottom-pull or braze-on.
Shimano says they don't make any, (Question 2) but, did they at one time (i.e. - is there an older model that I can look for on Ebay?)?
In addition, I have seen a braze-on/clamp-on adapter online for purchase. It is a clamp to fit on my bike that a braze-on derailleur can fit into. Question 3) Are there any problems with using one of these if I find a derailleur that fits all the other parameters?
