Hi All.

Is there a noticeable difference in performance between Shimano Deore, SLX and XT front mechs, I see when a bike comes it always seems to have a lower spec front mech than the rear is there a reason for this bar for cost ?

Also on my Anthem the clamp on band is below the mech and looking on CR there XT ones the band seem to be above is this what they are talking about when they say top pull and dual pull or is that the cable operation ? Also does is matter where the band mount is ?
