Anyone know if it is possible to adjust braze-on front derraileur on Felt F5 2010 (or similar bike) to make it work properly with compact crankset (50-34)? http://2010.feltracing.com/Resources/ProductPhotos/Bikes/10_FELT_F5...(3).jpg
I found that it is rather common problem, and those frames which allow to adjust it properly are more like an exception. I also found that there is a kind of washer available to fit it, but it does not look really promising. http://www.amazon.com/Braze-Front-Derailleur-washer-compact/dp/B003...
I don't know your particular bike but it should be possible. I changed to CC on my bike which had a braze on FD and there was plenty of scope for adjustment, this was running Shimano 105.
I've seen several complaints about this issue in internet. Probably it depends on brand. That is why I'm trying to find somebody who has a similar frame from Felt.
I have feeling that 2010 and 2011 frames are different regarding this. But it is good to know that new one is compatible. Thanks!
