    Front mech for Vaya

    Hello all,

    I'm looking for a good suggestion for a front derailleur on a 2011 Vaya. I have a M770 XT on there now and it won't shift into the granny I'm running an Alivio 48/36/26 crank with a 111 mm phil bb, gives me a 47.5 mm chainline. Can't seem to find a good 48T front mech that is at this old chainline. Also, why did mtb chainline go from 47.5 to 50? By my reckoning, 47.5 is the 'natural' chainline. Anywho, it looks like I'm stuck with road derailleurs? I'm using a barcon so indexing is not a concern.

    I had good results with a similar crankset using an SLX fd. I've switched to an SLX triple crankset for its lower gearing and it works fine also. Can't tell you the chainline...
