My new cyclocross bike will be Campagnolo Record equipped. But what to do with the front derailleur? Are Campagnolo top pull derailleurs available or should I use a conversion kit of some sort?

Easyest is just use Shimano XT etc. Or you can make some kind of roll in to frame than makes cable turn around near bb. I one thant kind of coming in on one frame, we will see how it works...

I'd go with an XT front mech. They do one model that is dual pull.
