I need some 9 speed derailleurs, and help

I recently hooked up my De rosa with Mavic heliums and a Sram pg950 9 speed cassette 12-26T. The frame is older though, and the clamp size is 28.6. Are there any old derailleurs that should work in my situation? im sure there is. There are no problems with the Rear derailleur, but i would like to upgrade it. Any suggestions?

OH a front derailleur. well there are lots of FDs with a 28.6 clamp but what type of shifters are you using? also what size are you chain rings?

you can always use a clamp on adaptor that allows you to use a brazeon type derailleur

+1. A braze-on adapter will allow you to use the same brand and model as on the rear. They're relatively inexpensive and allow you to transfer the derailleur to frames with other size seat tubes with only the modest investment of a new adapter (and none if it has a mounting tab).
