Update - that just happened. I was re-positioning the Prestige FD on the seat tube, to improve the shifting, and pop!

I have a gen-1 Suntour Cyclone FD on hand, so I swapped that in.

I used TUFO sealant but I've switched to Stan's NoTubes (http://www.notubes.com/Sealant-C14.aspx) sealant. Same results as far as I can tell, dramatically less expensive.
