All 5's use top pull front mechs.

Brocklanders is spot on for the clamp size too.

Nearly all modern front mechs can be used both top and bottom.

The 1st pic shows why a bottom swing mech won't fit, the swing arm will be in the way.

Re-capping looks like you need, top swing, 31.8 band with top pull cable.

Love these 5's btw!
