Anyone running a Dura Ace front derailleur on an epic frame? Which model should I use?Do they make a clamp big enough or do I need a custom clamp and then use a braze on?

Don't know about your frame,

but I've been running the braze-on version on my Palomino with a custom derailleur mount that Maverick makes to address the shifting problems that e-type derailleurs have with this suspension design. It works great on this frame...much better than the stock E-type XT derailleur that it came with. That said, here are your options...red font is QBP part number.

FD0706 Dura Ace 9 speed FD-7703 braze-on with DP6200 Shimano clamp 35.0mm.

FD7805 Dura-Ace 10 speed FD-7803 35mm clamp (currently out of stock at QBP).

Later...

Bottom swing (high clamp) hit the bottom of the guesset for the FSR linkage on the Epic frame. Basically, it's trying to be clamped to a non round surface with too great a diameter.

I was wondering about same setup with the FSR 120. Has any one tried a roadie triple with 34.8 mm clamp to fit in the short part of the tube where the FD can be clamped? I know you can't use a bottom swing FD, but road FDs clamp lower on the tube. Can maybe an old SRAM FD mounted, which has about the same clamp hight as the road clamps?
