I got it used from a guy on the New England Mountain Bike Association forums for $10 I think. It works great. I'm not sure of the model number, but if you'd like I can take a close-up photo of it for you.!bike said:Might need to look on ebay for one of those ... does it have a part number
Surly blog says LX M571 or XTR M953 ... 28.6 clamp or 31.8 with shim. Now to findMMcG said:I got it used from a guy on the New England Mountain Bike Association forums for $10 I think. It works great. I'm not sure of the model number, but if you'd like I can take a close-up photo of it for you.
Oh yeah and I run it without the Monkey Nuts, and with Exis and there is no rubbing on the front deraileur.
It says "SIS yes" so it will work with XT/XTR shifters??????? I had looked at this20.100 FR said:Every tire should work with a front road "braze on" derailleur:

I think so.!bike said:It says "SIS yes" so it will work with XT/XTR shifters??????? I had looked at this
and that point was not clear (and will work with small chainrings since it handles up
to 56 teeth.)
Looking more closely, some say SIS and some say DUAL SIS. They are not20.100 FR said:I
I think so.
Front derailleur cable pull is the same on road and off road.
You can see riders in the world cup (sauser) using dura ace front derailleur. There are a number of guys in the "save some weight" forum too.
The bigger chainline isn't really a problem. The limiting screws allows to go far enought to climb the big ring.!bike said:Looking more closely, some say SIS and some say DUAL SIS. They are not
expensive, and looking at the another thread, the FD4403 and FD4400 say
on the shimino site DUAL SIS yes (but speedgoat says the FD4400 won't
work with mountain shifters.) The FD7803 just says "Front SIS".
But for $30 bucks for the FD4403/FD4400 worth a try. Only worry other than
general stuff (will it have the reach to cover the smaller rings when optimized
for the bigger road rings) is that chain line on the KM is at 50, and these are
for 43 and 45 mm. But in theory, with the spacers on the shimano bottom
bracket, one could tweak the chainline easy enough on the hollow tech external
Local guy at the LBS rides a KM, I can go harrass him one afternoon.
