Replacing Shimano FD-AT11 for something similar

Hi guys, I've started a small restoration project and I need your help. I'm looking a replacement for front derailleur FD-AT11, bottom pull, 28.6mm clamp and cable housing holder. Any sugestions will be helpful, thanks.

VeloBase.com - Component: Shimano FD-AT11, Altus-ST

Chain ring sizes?
Shifter type?

Just about any "road" double will work.
Get one optimized for 53-39 vs a "compact" crank.

Friction shifting gives you a huge amount of leeway.
I'll assume you are less than a 9 speed, so a Claris FD-2400 should work fine.

Yes that's true but the thing is claris doesn't have a cable housing holder if you know what I mean. It's like in rear derailleur. That is most difficult part of my research :/

i just use a short length of brake cable housing as a guide to go under the bb. i do not bother to fix it in place, the cable tension holds it sationary.

I've just bought Shimano 60 EC-200, should be fine. Suntour Superbe is suitable as well. Cheers.
