front deraileur issue...compatability

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

front deraileur issue...compatability

I have a Shimano ultegra 9-speed group that I want to transfer to a new frame that requires a front deraileur with a 34.9mm clamp diameter. My current fd is a 31.8 mm diameter. Obviously I need a different front deraileur. Is there such a thing as a 34.9 clamp diameter 9-speed deraileur that is compatible with my system...what are my options here?

If your current FD is clamp a clamp-on model, then you're SOL and are going to have to buy a new one. In this case, I'd go braze on and save yourself future headaches with similar issues.

If you've got a braze-on FD, then just do as he said and get a new braze-on clamp.

^^^ Nashbar has them for only a few dollars. I have a couple myself. It sure makes transferring and adjusting components easy.
