Does anyone know of a front derailleur that would work with an XT 10-speed triple crankset and Ultegra 6703 10-speed triple STI shifters? Ultegra shifter cable pull is not compatible with what is required by XT front derailleurs, and the Ultegra 6603 and 6703 front deraillers can't shift to a 44t chainring.
I can no longer find replacement RaceFace Race chain rings for my "compact triple" 46/34/24 RaceFace Turbine (9-speed) crankset, which I run with Ultegra 6503 9-speed triple STI shifters and an Ultegra 6503 front derailleur. The latter two components are also difficult to find, but an IRD Alpina-d FD can substitute for the Ultegra 6503 FD. I really would rather not go back to bar end shifters.
I would be fine touring loaded with MTB gearing. If I find that I'm not using the big cog, I could always switch to a tighter cassette when the first wears out.
Thanks in advance for your help!
