    Firebird Front Derailleur Mount

    New Firebird 27.5 owner here. Stupid question but I can't find a good picture or directions anywhere online. Where does the spring on the front derailleur mount connect to? Do you connect it to the roller that contacts the black bumper piece? I bought the frame used with basically only one ride on it but got no manual with the bike showing how to install the mount. Can't find any directions on Pivot's website.

    Thanks in advance and pictures are worth a thousand words if you can provide one. :-)

    Pretty sure I figured it out. Can anybody confirm? Spring attaches to the back of the lower rear ISCG screw.

    Yeah, as far as I can remember that is correct.

    You are correctwith the lower ISCG tab. It will be the longer goofy bolt with an indent at the end.

    Here's another shot for completeness sake. Looking from below the BB from non-drive side.
