    FD for 429C

    Just got the 429C but can't figure out which FD to use, no answer from Pivot in the last two days and may be you can help, thanks!
    For the Shimano XT group, should I use:

    -XT M780 E-type 3x10, or
    -XT M781 Direct Mount 3x10 ??

    Thanks guys!

    This is from Pivot's tech FAQs @ Tech Info | Pivot Cycles - Mountain Bikes for XC, Trail, Downhill

    Do I need a special front derailleur?
    Pivot uses e-type Shimano front derailleurs that are readily available from any shop or parts distributor. We simply unbolt the derailleur from the plate and mount them directly to the precision machined tabs on our frame. This gives all Pivot frames the perfect derailleur height, angle, and location, and a super rigid mounting surface for the most precise and positive front shifting possible.

    E-type is for the aluminum frames. The 429c need a direct mount.
