    Front derailleur for Wildcard?

    I have a 2009 Wildcard and was wondering if anyone knew what type of front derailleur to run for a 2x10 setup? A high or low clamp front derailleur?

    I've looked on the forums and Banshee website and haven't found any specifics.
    Thanks to anyone who can fill me in.

    High clamp, top pull

    But why have a front derailleur at all?

    try going 1-10. if you have SRAM crank, you can fit 30T chainring and with 11-36 cassette you should be fine

    I do have the option of 1x10 w/31 tooth (custom Homebrewed chainring) on a shimano XT crank, but at 35 lbs of bike I'm better off with as high a gear as I can get for some of the climbs around here.
    SRAM xx1 would solve my problem, but the set up is way too exoensive. I'm trying to make do with the parts I currently have rather than buy new equipment at today's prices. Which are outrageous nowadays!
    Thanks amrayo. I assumed it was the high clamp and wanted to be sure.
