Bottom Swing

CouchCanoodle said:
Hi,
Does the 2005 El Santo use a top swing or bottom swing front derailleur? The site only said that it uses a 31.8mm clamp. The cable routing is for top pull.

Thanks,
Nick
Just to be clear, when you say bottom swing, you mean the old traditional type front derailleur.

The newer style top swing derailleurs with the low clamp will interfere with with pivot that is just above the BB.

FYI: New website coming in Feb.

Exactly...

When I say bottom swing, I mean traditional swing, aka high clamp, aka the usual, etc.

Thanks for the tip. Thank goodness for dual-pull front derailleurs.

PS- I'll post photos and a build sheet when I'm done. I just need to decide which hubs to buy, and then lace 'em up!
