Hey guys. I am in need of xtr m952 front derailleur in size 34.9. It is for my '97 klein attitude. Will a top pull fit on the bike? The cable is coming from below on the bike, but I can't find any down pull fd.

Any thoughts?

Patience.
I had to wait 2years for an M953, 28.6mm, top pull bottom swing fd to turn up... then 2 popped up within a week!

Big eck thans for your link. In his ad he says it's a toppull. So I guess that ain't working then?
