    Is there a special direct mount derailleur for Cannondale Flash???

    I ordered a direct mount XX front derailleur for my team Flash. The holes are too far apart though. Are there diffrent direct mount hole paterns?

    Yep. The direct mount FDs are quite complicated. Make sure you order the one specifically for your front ring too. If you didn't, it should still work though.

    26 Flash w/42T: order Direct Mount S2 42 Bottom Pull
    26 Flash w/39T: order Direct Mount S2 39 Bottom Pull

    29 Flash w/42T: order Direct Mount S3 42 Bottom Pull
    29 Flash w/39T: order Direct Mount S3 39 Bottom Pull

    Of course this is all assuming you are running 2x10 (which is required to be able to use the XX FD) and the XX chainrings (not required)

    I am planning on running a 44/30 front chainring combo on my new Carbon Flash 29'er on the standard Hollowgram four arm spider outer and middle position with the inner left empty for now. You're making me think it may not work with the stock FD. Maybe I should get the triple one because I'd like to have the option of throwing the inner 22 tooth on even though I probably never will do that...

    Shimano Front direct mount option on Flash

    I built one up last month and Cannondale makes kit# kp123 that will convert a shimano E-type front derailleur to mount to the Flash carbon frame.
