    Top pull record...

    Hallo forum,

    My new crossbike will be Campagnolo Record-equipped. But what to do with the front derailleur? Can it be converted to top pull (if so, how?) or should I switch to another derailleur (if so, which?)

    Thanks in advance,
    Timo

    don't quote me on this, but since campy left shifters are not, strictly speaking, indexed, you can probably use and fd. you can also retrofit a special pulley that allows you to use a bottom-pull fd. look here:

    when walking, just walk. when sitting, just sit. when riding, just ride. above all, don't wobble.
