Thanks for the info everyone, much appreciated. I'm going with an XT front derailleur as it's the same as the xtr size wise and a little bit cheaper.

The San Andreas is now finished and I'm extremely happy with this build as it has exceeded my expectations in all areas.
The handling is awesome and I was shocked when I weighed it as I didn't think I could get it so low.

All the original black fittings have been stripped and re-powdercoated in a candy red to match the other red highlights.
Thanks also to John @ Gripsport for an absolutely fantastic powder coating job on the frame. Anyway I don't think
