    Problems installning front derailleur on a chinese carbon FS frame!

    I`ve got some problems installing the Shimano XT-M780E front derailleur on my Yishun FS frame (FM169, should be the same frame as Hong Fu, Deng Fu and I-PLay FS-frames). The hole through the bottom of the frame that the gear cable runs through doesn`t match up with the wire connector on the derailleur, it looks like the hole is a little bit too far back compared to the the derailler so it`s impossible to connect the wire in the way it should be routed through the derailleur.

    Hs anyone else experiencd anything like this with the chinese S-fames?

    I don`t know if it`s easy to se the misalignment on a Picture but I have routed the wire on the "wrong" side of the derailleur so know it works. I will try to take a Picture of it also...
