    New question here. VP-Free & front deraileur?

    Can a VP-Free frame be built with a front derailleur: 22T, 32T, & ring bash guard?

    Yes......that is what made it so appealing to so many. 8.5" of travel and ability to run a FD.

    This is why so many did not like the Driver 8.
    I crashed hard enough on my Tallboy to break my leg,
    The carbon is way more durable than most people.

    You can't teach an old dog new tricks over here, I'm still smashing my XL free with a 22T/36T/Gamut bash P30 dual ring setup and loving it. I'm using a saint front derailleur from the 800 part number older series. Not sure what the model number is?
