The new website will have all this kind of info when it is up and running, shouldn't be too long now.
for M, L, and XL respectively. with 120mm reba and aprox 2.2 tires

755mm (29.7") 800mm (31.5") 816mm (32.1")
A bit easier on the eyes in a table. I punched in the numbers only for the 120mm Reba.

Yeah there was but since then I've found even more FD that fit.
It seems almost every level of shimano from LX, SLX, XTR, Hone Saint all have high clamp FD with little going on towards the backside of the clamp.
Just get a 66-69[+] angle, and the ones i saw were all dual pull.
https://bike.shimano.com/publish/content/global_cycle/en/us/index/products/mountain/slx/product.-code-FD-M667.-type-.html
for example this one will totally work... and there are ones just like it at different levels.
I guess you could almost say its not really an issue now.
