Shimano XTR Front Derailleur M981 3x10

The Shimano XTR M981 front derailleur is a Down Swing design with a higher clamp position to avoid any external frame butting near the bottom bracket (the pivot is down below the frame clamp). It works with either top pull or bottom pull cable routing.

It includes shims to fit any size diameter seat tubes and works best with frames that will not accept Top-Swing (lower seat tube clamp position) front derailleurs due to seat tubes that are ovalized at the bottom where it joins to the bottom bracket shell. Compatible with a 3x10 drivetrain only.
