Hello everyone (and/or Nino),

Getting ready to pull the trigger on a braze-on Dura-Ace FD-7700 front derailleur with a clamp adapter. I'm going to be using the X0 shifters and X0 rear derailleur with a 3x9 setup, most likely the typical 44-32-22. I wanted to make sure the 7700 works well with the 3x9 setup.

Nino, I noticed you had it on one of your Scott's on light-bikes.com. Were you happy with the shifting performance of the Dura-Ace and the 3x9? If it's going to be a major PITA for any reason, I'll probably go with a different front derailleur.

Thanks for any input you guys may have.

:cool:

The 7700 works with a triple setup as long as you're using a fairly short bb. Nino is using a 103 mm bb. Otherwise there is another DuraAce front derailleur (7703?) that works with a triple setup but it surely weighs more.

it works also with 107 square BBs, no problem!
maybe on FS bikes where you sometimes have longer axles the limited range might be a problem.

Thanks guys...

Thanks a ton for the help, guys. This will be for the Bandito hardtail that I'm building up at the moment. I'll make sure I verify the axle length before ordering the derailleur. I'm most likely going to go with the Extralite crankset or the Tune crankset (either the BigFoot or FastFoot).

Thanks again!!
