    identify this XTR front derailleur

    I have the same frame and I'm looking to install one. I thought it was the direct mount type but it is not.

    The first pic is from a 960 xtr derailleur. The typo of the logo is from the 960 series. Thatīs 100% sure...whatever the clamp.
    Also, Iīm 99% sure there is a Ti King Cage showing up there too.
