Shimano Ultegra FD-6800 11-speed Front Derailleur
It's the new Shimano Ultegra 6800 and it's causing a stir. This updated front derailleur features the same technology as the pro-level Dura-ace. Like Di2 front derailleurs the mechanical braze-on version of the FD-6800 has a new 2mm hex support bolt that stabilizes the front derailleur against the frame by providing an extra contact point. The FD-6800 also has a trim feature so it can be fine-tuned to be quiet in all gear combinations.
  • New, longer pull arm for more direct and easy shifting
  • More equal shifting effort across the range
  • New support bolt for more stable contact to the frame

Comments about Shimano Ultegra FD-6800 11-speed Front Derailleur:

I may have created a nearly worst case scenario. Old style Ultega shift levers, and a carbon frame with a nearly-centered cable feed hole in the frame. The in-box instructions are inadequate; download the dealer setup PDF from Shimano. Otherwise you will have no clue how to use the cable alignment tool that comes in the box.
When I first set up the derailleur, exactly as the instructions said, it wouldn't shift AT ALL! The actuating lever on this model is tall and close to parallel with the seat tube (really obvious in photos) so unless the cable pulls from fairly far off center from the drive side there is initially zero mechanical advantage. I was only able to make it work by using an unapproved cable routing which only changed pull angle a couple of degrees,but the was enough, once the lever moves at all the problem goes away. If I had drilled a new hole in my frame, further away from the chainwheels that would have accomplished the same thing. All that said, it now works flawlessly. Super crisp shifting and 4 positions to trim the cage position and avoid rubbing. When I say below that I would not recommend this to a friend, I mean not to a friend with a similar frame.

      Installation instructions are a little confusing, but after reading several times, the install went well. It shifts nice.
