    X7 2x10 Front der. ?s

    What I know;
    -I have an X7 2x10 Front der. that came on my 2011 Redline D660.
    -(If I measured correctly) the OD of the seat tube is 31.8
    -The cable comes down the seat tube.

    What I don't know;
    -There appears to be a shim in the clamp. Will this also fit a 34.9?
    -Is this low clamp/high (or top) pull?
    -Can it work in any other configuration?...specifically if the cable was to come from the down tube and under the bb shell? Would that be low clamp/low (or bottom) pull?

    Hopefully some pics will help. Thanks in advance.

    It looks like a Low Clamp Dual-Pull derailleur. Dual-Pull means it can be routed top or bottom pull.

    The installation guide shows the cable routing (top pull and bottom pull).
    The frame fit guide shows the X7 front derailleur fits a 34.9mm seat tube (page 6)

    yes, there is a shim, and the clamp diameter without the shim is 34.9.
    it is a low clamp
    it's dual-pull. See how the cable goes into that claw thing, then loops around to the pinch bolt? If you ran it in the bottom-pull configuration, you'd bypass the claw and go straight to the pinch bolt.
