Road Front Derailleurs
While single chainring drivetrains have started to creep over to the world of cycling from mountain biking, the humble front derailleur still rules the roost for most road bikes. A double or sometimes triple chainset teamed with a front derailleur and close-ratio cassette gives riders excellent gear range; a high enough gear for super-fast descents where speeds can top 50+ mph, as well as a low-enough gear when a climb to the top of Alp D’Huez is on the menu.
Road front derailleurs come in a variety of fitments and versions to suit different styles of frames and drivetrains, with traditional clamp on designs for triple chainsets through to braze-on designs for the latest all-singing, all dancing top of the range groupsets and carbon race bikes. No matter what front derailleur you need for your road bike, you’ll be sure to find what you’re looking for.
