Derailleur question?

Checking on different front dirailleurs on the web they fall in two categories:

- the very expensive ones that do not specify if they are for double or triple

- the very economic ones that specify if it is for triple or double

I was looking into the FD7800 to adapt to a Shimano Triple 10 spd.

Why the expensive style do not specify?

Is it a given that the Campagnolos Shimano Dura Ace all fit on two and three chainrings?

Any info is appreciated!

Kudos for you...

You have bad info. All front dérailleurs are double/triple specific.

DA triple is FD-7803. Best used with a DA crankset.
