Front der compat with STS...(3 posts)

Front der compat with STS...Wannabe
Jun 4, 2002 8:48 AM
I have a an early 90s Shimano 105 front derailleur (double) on a bike I am converting to STS. The STS shifter I have is an older Shimano 600 double. Can I use this 600 STS shifter with the 105 front derailleur or will I need to find a new front derailleur?


I mean STI!!! nmWannabe

First criteria for shimano front derailer to be compatible with SIT is that the arm the cable attaches to has to be perpindicular to the deralier cage plates.
