This is by far the best front derailleur I've ever used. Shifts are lightening fast, silky smooth, and absolutely reliable. It was a little tricky to cable -- after passing through the pinch bolt, the cable wraps around the front of the housing then passes through the protective cap and back toward the rear wheel -- but once I figured out the cabling and adjusted the stops, it works great. Shifting is effortless and precise, and the price was very reasonable given the derailleur's quality. I highly recommend this derailleur. Get it -- you won't regret it!
