    SRAM S3 top pull XX ONLY

    The XO is too bulky.

    Only the XX FD will work for double cranks with a 42T. The Shimano double may have frame clearance issues.

    Hello,
    I received the derailleur.

    During the installation I noticed a loose on the derailleur cage.

    I can move it back and forth ( facing the crank) of about 5mm.

    It's the first time I see a play like that on a front derailleur.

    I looked online and found nothing about it.

    Can anyone here with a XX direct mount confirm if it's normal or not.
    I tried the Sram forum without success.
    Thanks a lot!
