    Does the 429 Frameset come with the FD?

    Since it's bolt on, I can't tell from the online descriptions I've seen. I'm guessing no, but trying to decide on a frame (vs complete bike) and piecing together parts I'd need.

    Thanks

    You can get it as a frame only (includes frame, shock, BB and seat clamp) or frame kit (adds the front der., fork and headset). The front der. is an E-Type direct mount which can be either Shimano or Sram depending on which group you plan to use..

    You guys should put a little tech article/a few pics on your site about making the direct mount derailleur out of an e-type. You know... "Here's what to buy, unbolt this bracket... etc." Seems a lot of people are confused by it. I only knew cause I had a specialized before i got my pivot.

    I'll mention it to our web guys. We're still adding content and features to the new site so suggestions are a good thing.

    Thanks guys. Whichever way I go, I'm hoping I can pull it off soon. And Chirstmas is coming...!
