What kind do you use for your cross-bikes? I have a small wheel on the frame so I can use both top and bottompull!

I'm thinking about road derailleur because of the weight but maybe the mtb derailleur is better because of the compact chainrings?

CT - is that for compact cranksets?

It is indeed. Slightly more curved than the normal one.

but wouldn't a road front derailleur for compact chainrings be the same as a mtb front derailleur?

mtb derailleurs are a bit tricky to adjust, i would use a road derailleur. at the moment i'm using a record one for normal chainrings(no ct)with dura ace 10 speed levers without any problems.

Thanks Simon - I mounted my Dura Ace front derailleur from my roadbike until I find an ultegra (called 3 shops today and they were all out). Merry Chrismas to you, Simon and thanks alot of all your advises through the year! It was been really good!!!
