    XT 2x11 Front Derailleur Choice Burner Sultan

    I am planning to upgrade to 2x11 XT on my Burner 27.5 and Sultan. I see there are traditional derailleurs and "side pull" derailleurs that supposedly offer increased tire clearance. Assuming I get bottom swing top pull will either derailleur work on my frames? or is the side pull version for specifically designed frames. Please advise. Thanks.

    scroll to the bottom and there is a front derrailleur mod guide.

    Thanks. I did a little research and it appears the side pull derailleur is frame specific. I will stay with the conventional recommended types.
