    What XTR Front Der. compatible with Spark 2013 ?!

    Hello guys,

    i have a problem here and i need help to solve it.
    My frame is a Scott Spark 900 RC 2013. And i am using a Shimano XTR Double M980 Crankset 38-26T.
    I am looking for a XTR Front Der. to use with my system (that is all xtr)BUt...
    -The XTR M980 Front Deraileur is only for Triple Cranksets;
    -The XTR M985-E is for use with 40-44T cranks;
    -The XTR M-985-E2 is compatible with my 38T crankset. But it is not compatible with the Spark frame.

    Any suggestions ?
    Is it impossible to use a 38-26T system and a complete XTR kit with a Spark frame ?

    Just discovered that there is one version FD-M986-D (Direct Mount) , that you fix it to the frame with 1 bolt.
    I dont know if the Spark 900 RC 2013 Frame i have to use the E2-Type (that uses 2 bolts to fix it to the frame) or the M986D (that uses 1 bolt).

    Anyone can help me here ?

    Scott Support told me that i need a "Shimano XTR M985 E2-type 2x10" .
    , directly mounted on the frame.

    Thanks all,
    Problem solved
