    Carbon Flash 29er front deraillier?

    My 29er 2 came with an SLX direct mount front deraillier. I'm curious if there are any other options or if anyone else's came with something different? The specs said that the 29er 1 is supposed to come with the SLX, but there are several other parts on my "lower spec" 2 that are supposed to be on the 1. My only concern, as silly as it is, is that it is a huge ugly spot on an otherwise beautiful bike. Shimano makes direct mount XT's, but they don't look anything like the one that is on there now. Any constructive input would be appreciated.

    So was the XT direct mount you removed a low mount, like my SLX is, or was it a high mount, like the only pictures of it I can find show? Is there a serial # or model # on the XT?

    Thanks.

    as i wrote , was a direct mount

    the XT or XTR or SLX direct mount are only and simply an E-Type without the BB installation plate
