    Down Swing same as Botton Swing?

    I was told I need to get a down swing front derailleur. Is this the same thing as a bottom swing? Or are those different?

    Hmmm... "down swing?" Probably bottom swing.

    Bottom swing is also referred to as "high clamp" and "conventional," and I guess I could imagine somebody calling it "down swing."

    The other choice, by the way, is "top swing," which is also called "low clamp" and "compact."
