Can you run 105 or Ultegra derailleurs as top pull, its on a cross bike.

Cervelo R5
Cinelli Saetta
Giant XTC
Raleigh Classic

    Yes, but you need a pulley device that will reverse the direction of the cable pull from the top. Do a google search or maybe someone will provide a link. (Sorry but I'm leaving for work and don't have time)

    FWIW nobody makes a top-pull road front mech - all are bottom pull and typically use a pulley for a top-routed cable
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

    Check the seat tube. Mine has a threaded hole near the BB (looks like a mudguard bracket) to attach a wheel to (same a a mech verter effectively)
