And an unknown(at the monment)fd. I'd like to put a Suntour Spirt on it, but I don't know if they shift three rings. I guess there is one way to find out.
I usually set up spirts as wide range doubles but they will do a triple. The best value front derailleur ever made. I wish I had a hundred of em.
