    Which SLX from derailleur on 2010 Flash 1 ???

    So I just received a Flash 1 frame that I've been waiting on as a warranty replacement for the last 9 weeks. I thought I had everything I needed to get it built up but it appears that the SLX front derailleur i have doesn't fit between the tire and the seat stay. All cannondale says online is that the bike comes with a shimano SLX but shimano makes 7 variations of that model. It appears that I have little to no space there, is that normal? Anyone have pictures of one installed?

    Bottom Swing (high mount)

    It's a bottom swing on the Flash 1 29'er. I think a 34.6 clamp. Gets very close to the tire. A top swing (low mount) XTR did not work, it did rub the tire.

    Is it on a 29'er?

    It is a 29er so the space is super tight. I'm having issues with the crank I was using so I just ordered an FSA Afterburner BB30 instead of messing with the adapters and hollowtech crank I have. Once I get it mounted it will be time to tackle the derailleur. Everything else is ready and waiting though!
