    mission front derailleur issue

    I have the mission 3 w/ hammerschmidt, but I was thinking of going to a new crankset w/ a front derailleur. The issue at hand seems to be a missing part. I can't figure how the cable runs under the bottom bracket. Thanks in advance.

    What type of front derailleur do they need because I'm doing the exact same thing.

    You need a low clamp topswing dual pull der 34.9 Get a XT it is a great one, or if you are going 2x10 the SRAM is awesome! Why not 1x I have and love it! Good work out on climbs but really flies, simple, will make you a better rider IMO too, ie strong legs and work on shifting skills to,

    Agreed, single ring up front is the ticket.
