    Trance 3 - Bottom Swing or Top Swing front derailleur?

    Greetings,

    My apologies for asking such a stupid question but I'm looking to order a new front derailleur asap and my bike is at home. Would anyone know if I have a top swing or bottom swing front derailleur?

    The bike is stock and is a 2005 Giant Trance 3.

    Thank you!

    Mike

    Looking at a picture of one up closely...it is quite obvious that it is a top swing (no way a bottom swing would even work).

    I was trying to find it on Giant's web site but they didn't seem to go that far into detail... Thank you!

    I have a Trance 1 - Top swing, low clamp, top pull, 34.9mm clamp. A bottom swing high clamp won't fit at all.
