    Front Derailleur for a Scout?

    Hi,

    I'm about to build up a bike using a new to me 2015 Scout frame. Anyone know what specific front derailleurs work well on a Scout? I've read the website and realize it needs to be a SRAM S3 LDM or Shimano E2 Type, but when I go to order there are still lots of remaining options to choose from.

    I assume its a bottom pull? And, at least for Shimano I need to know whether its top swing, bottom swing, etc.

    I'm using a 2x10 with 38/24 chain rings and X7 2x10 shifters.

    Thanks!
    OTE

    E-type bottom pull low swing model should be the correct choice. E.g. SLX FD-M675-E2 looks right. Maybe sideswing models would work as well, but cable routing becames excotic.
