Here's a 105 FD and a 46t big ring. You can see the mismatch in the curve of the cage. It shifts just fine. Rivendell sometimes uses this setup on the Atlantis. That's how I knew I could get away with it. The real problem on this particular frame is the clearance between the end of the cage and the rear shifter cable. I have it set as close as possible without touching.
