Santa Cruz Superlight 29 - What type of front deraileur?
I am going to build up a 2013 Santa Cruz Superlight 29. Can anyone tell me the type of front Deraileur that goes on it? I need upswing or downswing and any other information about it.
Also, does it have a frame mount or clamp mount?
A 34.9 top swing/ top pull. Anything but saint should do the job.
The Santa Cruz site has a FAQ page for each of their bikes.
Santa Cruz Bicycles SUPERLIGHT29
Select the Superlight 29, then go to Support tab on left then select FAQ
Haven't checked the Santa cruz site, but the post above sounds about right. Just make sure you know If your gonna run a 2x10 or 3x10 crank. You'll need the match the front der with the crank. You probably already know this, but just FYI
Both responses have been very helpful.
And to drs4400sm response, no, I hadn't considered that. I am glad you mentioned it. I am still debating which way to go with the two or the three or even back to 9 gears. I like dropping the outer chainring for a bash guard as on my current rig.
