Top pull Compact Drive Road front Derailleur for MTB 2x9 setup
I would like to build up a 2x9 drivetrain for the new Giant XTC frame I just purchased. I would like to use a road front Derailleur if possible (Primarily to save weight), but it seems as though I am unable to find one that is a top pull version. Does such a derailleur exist?
Any help is appreciated.
Check this thread: which road front der, for 29/44

I am using a Campy Record Titanium CT FD that I converted to Top pull on my 2x9, 29/44 chainring setup. It works awesome, and shifts 1,000 times better than the XTR M952 derailleur that it replaced.
Have a read through this thread for details and pictures on my setup:
