Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

FSA C-16 FD Braze-on or Clamp on

This here FD is a clamp on but doesn't fit around the seat tube.

If I exchange it for the braze on, will it fit on my old 105 clamp?

Thanks.

To attach a "braze-on" you'll either need to have the mount built for it (on the frame), or you need an adapter (basically a clamp with a "braze-on" mount).

FSA makes 2 different clamp sizes. Take it back and see if you can get the correct size.

You can get one of these for only a few bucks.
