Shimano Cyclocross FD-CX70 Top Pull Front Derailleur
When you're doing your best to stay upright through an off-camber turn in 6-inches of sand, the last thing you want to worry about is whether or not your front derailleur will actually shift. Never fear, because Shimano is here with a 'cross specific front derailleur. Yes, it's true. The Shimano FD-CX70 is an Ultegra-level top pull front cyclocross derailleur made to work with Shimano STI levers. It's designed to shed even the stickiest of mud, and shift through the lower gearing range used in cyclocross. Now all you're missing is a jar of embro and a bag of Belgian fries.

      Comments about Shimano Cyclocross FD-CX70 Top Pull Front Derailleur:

      I recently swapped by cross frame for one (Cinelli Zydeco) with shifter cabling on top of the top tube. The Zydeco frame comes with a seattube-mount pulley to change cable direction for the front derailleur, but the cable interfered with the Cinelli-supplied front der mounting band - plus, who wants a pulley?

      I run Sram Rival on the cross bike, and went looking for a top-pull front der that would be compatible with the Doubleclick shifters.

      The CX70 seems like a useful innovation by Shimano, and works fine with the Sram shifter. The part is simple and light, but not at all beauutiful -- functional is the word!

      Anyway, recommended for this application, and Nashbar had the best price.
