You'll need a 34.9mm bottom swing (high clamp band), top pull front derailleur - model FD-M771.

The FD-M77x series comes mainly as dual pull units (I've not seen any single pulls) and supplied with shims to fit smaller diameter seat tubes, so there is less of a chance you can mess up with your choice.

Btw, is the stated frame weight accurate?
thats great, thanks for the detailed info. as for the actual frame weight it should be here in a day or two. i'll weigh it up right away and post a reply.
I got the fram yesterday, weighs in at 1370 grams, a bit more than the description, but it looks really nice. can't wait to build it up.
