    Ideal bike frame

    Hi. I would like to ask if any of you know frame that is similar to Fezzari Signal Peak, but has a front derailleur mount.

    I'm looking for:
    -2 bottle cage full-sus frame (one bottle mount should be specialized-like, with 3 bolts)
    -option for plus+ tires
    -front derailleur mount
    -max. 120mm fork.

    Ultimately I could resign from that specialized-like bottle mount

    Give up the front derailleur and youíre good to go.

    In this day and age, the only bikes that need a front derailleur are touring bikes with panniers.

    seems odd that the Fezzari is marketed as a race bike and has a triple cage mount, which is typically found on bikes with expedition/bikepacking in mind. Why do you want one of these, OP? They're most common on hardtails and on expedition-ready rigid forks, honestly. Most people who bikepack with FS bikes use frame bags in lieu of cargo cages.

    For that matter, 2 bottle mounts inside the front triangle of a modern FS bike is quite rare.

    This one has everything except the extra triple mount.

    Damn, I thought this was going to be about a bike frame made out of bacon, cheese and beer.

    I would also ask why you need a front derailleur? Have you tried a 1x12 yet? You will not lack for gears for 99% of mountain biking. Sometimes on the ride home down a very steep paved hill I wish I had another gear, but it also feels nice to relax for a minute.

    The Signal Peak looks like an awesome bike, bikes with two water bottle mounts are few and far between, I donít know of any that have a front derailleur mount (Epic, Canyon Lux, etc). Eventually I think weíll see almost all mountain bikes eliminate the front derailleur, so you wonít have much of a choice, it is happening slowly.
