    Front derailleur on 2010 epic comp 29er?

    I'm chainging the crank on my 2010 epic comp 29er to a 2x9 alternative with 26/38 chainrings. To get the best front shifting I need to change the front derailleur. At the moment there is a SLX direct mount there. It seems to be a E type that has been mounted on a spacer of some sort. I want to install a 2011 X9 direct mount but cant figure out if it is a S2 or S3 I need?

    Does someone have a clue?

    I am in the middle of a 2010 Epic Comp Carbon frame build as well. Spec rep told me S1 X.0 front der but upon installing, the lower part of the cage is about 0.5mm from the chainstay...way too close! Clearly will need to use adapter that came with frame (same SLX DM as yours) and exchange for S3 instead.

    I had a 2010 Epic Marathom 29er last year and it had a S1 direct mount on it.
