    Front Derailleur Q

    Im in need of a bottom pull style , does most of the new modles do both ( bottom or top swing ? ) or do i need to look for one that is bottom pull specific.. Im looking at getting a LX or even XT..

    Many are dual pull, which will work.

    Does that take away from the quality / shifting smoothness vs a top swing / bottom swing specific derailleor ?

    Dual pull might weigh more, due to the added material needed. No difference in performance over a top or bottom pull specific of the same design.

    Top swing vs. down swing depends a lot on your frame, many frames (especially FS) require one or the other, due to frame design.

    Pull and swing are not the same...
