Does anyone know what front mech is needed for the Cannondale raven with the Bonded swingarm

(not the CAAD 4 swing arm)

Spare front mech's I've tried is an LX M581A and an XT FD M739. Both are bottom pulls but the left hand mechanism hit off the swingarm and squints the mech.

Any Idea's


Plus on the swingarm, the top cable guide is just a straight through guide... The bottom one is (rear mech side) is a proper outer cable stop <from frame to mech> I thought it would both have been the same, either both straight through guides or both outer cable stops... The top haven been drilled through or anything as it's still the original paint job.

Am I missing something?

Don't know if you've already got the answers you need but here is a pic of the cast rear arm that was on my Super V till I replaced it with a CAAD4. Can see why in middle of pic.
I could have a look and check mine tomorrow if pic isn't any use.

Hi all, sorry for not replying sooner but thanks for the info! Even though your a 'frog' lol! It's very much appreciated!

Think after this front mech is sorted, that's the build complete. :)

Will post up pics in the next few weeks. (Currently on honeymoon)
