    Exploded view X.7 front derailleur
    I've got a situation where the unused bottom pull side of the dual pull on an X-7 derailleur is only about 1/4 to 1/2 inch off my rear tire. It's not a problem now, but may become one when I change tires. So I was wondering if an exploded view of the derailleur is available so I can determine if it's safe to just cut off that side of the pull connector since I won't be using it.

    Closure - finally got around to just pulling the FD off and having a look - there's no problem cutting off the bottom pull cable connection. A few miinutes with a Dremel opened up plenty of room for me between the tire and mech.
