    Quick front derailleur question...

    I have a Shimano Alivio front derailleur (I know I know...crappy) and it is a "top pull" type derailleur. Is there any way it can be used as a "bottom pull" type? My new frame has the cable running down the downtube instead of down the seat tube.

    Thanks!

    ... and quick reply, Nope, sorry. But you can get a new XT from Supergo for $16.
