    E- type front derailler

    Just wonder if it is possible to use an E-type der like XTR on my ML8..
    Is it possible?

    The best front derailleur is a Shimano R-400 Flat Bar road 9spd triple as the geometry of that front derailleur is closer to a mountain derailleur due to the leverage and cable pull of flat bar shifters.
    http://www.jbi.bike/web/checking_pro...t_number=25798 I have installed these for years and the shifting is superior to the Ultegra/105/Dura Ace

    I tried this for a while, since the original specs of the ML8 said E Type -or- D mount. But it never worked well, and Ethan said to use the D mount.

    Of course then I smartened up and now I ride a 1x9.
