Shimano Dura-Ace FD-7900 Braze-On Front Derailleur
Sure, everyone's jumping on the 11-speed bandwagon these days, but Shimano's 10-speed systems are still rock solid marvels of engineering awesomeness. And when it comes to 2x10 road front derailleurs the Shimano Dura-Ace 7900 model gets the job done like nobody's business. Its forged aluminum construction is super strong and plenty light, its spring tension makes it shift like buttah, and best of all you don't have to worry about trimming the derailleur on the big ring.
  • Stiff, solid, wide link design increases strength, rigidity and eliminates the need to manually trim the outer chainring - no more chain rub in the big-big combination!
  • Optimized spring tension reduces the shifting effort
  • Forged aluminum construction reduces weight without sacrificing durability
  • Shimano 2x10 speed compatible
  • Braze-on version

    I have been riding more years than I'd like to remember, and have always found Dura Ace to be the best of the best in all aspects.

      Comments about Shimano Dura-Ace FD-7900 Braze-On Front Derailleur:

      Great derailleur and easy to install. Worked well with my 105 shifters and my 6600/6700 ultegra drive train. This is the first I encountered without cross chaining issues. Smooth and accurate shifting. Maybe there is really something about the dura ace line.

      Comments about Shimano Dura-Ace FD-7900 Braze-On Front Derailleur:

      the 7900 front derailleur is being used with Shimano 6700 shifters and a 9 speed SLX mountain bike rear derailleur.

      This was an upgrade from a 6600 FD and provides smoother lighter shifting. The trim feature in the 6700 shifters works fine with the 7900 FD.
      Easy to set up along with a chain catcher.

        Comments about Shimano Dura-Ace FD-7900 Braze-On Front Derailleur:

        Install and adjustment is totally unique to the FD-7900. My otherwise DA7900 "pro" bike came with a FD-6700 which is not supposed to work with 7900 lever and never worked well. As an experiment I first adjusted the FD-6700 using the FD-7900 method...huge improvement... the issue is the SH-7900 levers have less cable pull and the amount of cable slack is critical. The FD-7900 works better as the cage shaped is a bit different.
