  • The FD760 front mech has HUGE design issues. Shimano have not designed it correctly. The cable clamp collides with the seat tube clamp. I am not kidding........!!!!!!!!!

  • Er, If the cable clamp collides with the seat tube clamp, that would mean it is way too high, or you are fitting it to a kiddies bike......
    One goes at the top of the seat tube, the other near the bottom, just above the bottom bracket...
