    Question about switching out front derailleurs on Zeppelin Elite

    I am looking at switching out the Shimano FD-M412 front derailleur for a SRAM X7 2 x 10.
    I already have converted my ;bike to a 2 x 9, I found a deal on Craigslist (see photo below). I am a bit confused after doing some research online that there are different types: (31.8/34.9 dual pull low, hi clamp DM pull and regular 31.8/34.9) can anyone tell me which one would be the best fit and what type the one in the photo is ?

    The one in your image looks like a dual pull, high clamp. I can't tell for certain though.

    IIRC the Zeppelin came with a top pull, low clamp. A high clamp may work but you'd need to be certain there's proper clearance for the swing-arm. You'd probably need to do a test-fit to check it out.

    Hope that helps,
