Hi guys,

It appears that my frame will take either top or bottom pull front mech.

Is there any actual advantage in one over the other, or should I use 'other factors' when deciding which to buy?

I'm actually starting to get some of the bits together now wooHoo.

Go for top pull: the cable is a little less exposed to crud and you can fit a crudcatcher without interfering with it.

I also think top cable routing looks better but that's just my taste.
