    SLX 2 chainring what FD

    Sir,

    I plan two use a 2 chain ring SLX do I need to get a new front derailluer or you can use the FD for triple chain ring and adjust so as it will only shift to the mid ring.

    Thanks

    you can keep your "triple derailleur", just readjust the high limit.

    You can use a triple der, but the SLX double specific der has a shorter cage and won't hit your chainstay or tire when it's sitting at the perfect height. Shifting is super clean and solid with the double der, and it comes in all forms (direct, E-type, high clamp, low clamp).
