    Top pull FD w/road levers?

    Gotta quick one here, contemplating putting road bars on my mtb and would like to run road levers (STI) and have top tube FD cable routing, will this work? I figure an MTB FD along with road (105) levers. Compatible? Ideally double chainring. Thanks

    Sure, That'll Work

    Front Derailleurs are dumber than rear derailleurs. They dont care what shifters are hooked up to them.
