    What year is your frame? My 2012 has a top pull (cable comes from top tube downward), low clamp FD.

    It's a 201l and the cable comes from the top... so I guess top pull... Is the other info needed called "swing" or the "low clamp" you mention??

    Thx.

    Low Clamp = Top Swing
    SRAM X0 2x10sp Low Clamp Front Mech | Buy Online | ChainReactionCycles.com

    High Clamp = Bottom Swing

    Low/High Clamp is more SRAM-speak; Shimano tends to use Top/Bottom Swing.
