Shimano Dura-Ace FD-R9150 Front Derailleur Adapter Black 349mm

Shimano Dura-Ace FD-R9150 Front Derailleur Adapter Black, 34.9mm

Shimano Dura-Ace FD-R9150 Front Derailleur Adapter Black, 34.9mm - Frankly, di2 front derailleurs are designed to be attached to carbon frames whose seat tubes have such tortured, overwrought shapes that no clamp known to human kind can tame them, so they’re all just braze-on derailleurs that mount directly to the frame. It’s an age-old solution to a contemporary problem. This rules out frames with traditional, round, tube-shaped tubes–unless, that is, you’ve got the right adapter. Shimano’s di2 derailleurs are a good case in point, but the dura-ace fd-r9150 front derailleur adapter simplifies the hunt. There are two things you can count on with steel frames they ride like butter and you’ll have to spend an inordinate amount of time hunting down a braze-on mount in order to attach any of today’s front derailleurs to them. The fd-r9150 adapter lets you marry the latest drivetrain technology with your favorite frameset.

 

Shimano Dura-Ace R9100 11-Speed Braze-On Front Derailleur

Shimano Dura-Ace R9100 11-Speed Braze-On Front Derailleur

Shimano Dura-Ace R9100 11-Speed Braze-On Front Derailleur - Plus, the derailleur’s more compact internals mean that the entire body has shrunk, increasing clearance and eliminating the infuriating cable rub that has irritated many of us to our limits at some point in our cycling careers. Across dura-ace 9100, shimano made subtle, rather than monumental, shifts in design to improve a system that was already pretty damn good. Proving that mechanical drivetrains can–and still should–be improved, shimano focused most of its attention on the derailleurs, making the biggest changes to ride experience with important tweaks to both the front and rear derailleurs’ designs. No, shimano found a way to redesign the body of the derailleur, equipping it with a new linkage system and integrated cable tension adjuster that does away with the need for a barrel adjuster. Key big ring shifts in the heated moments of a race are no longer just possible within a strict set of parameters now, you’ll only have to lift a finger. The design embraces multiple routing options that its previous version wouldn’t dream of allowing, and requires low rider effort to generate precise, crisp shifts. The resulting dura-ace fd-r9100 11-speed front derailleur delivers concrete improvements to its predecessor’s shortcomings, behaving far more consistently than the often moody than some of its predecessors, whose changes in attitude could be set off by cable entry angles and cable tension that didn’t suit it. How’d they do it not by magic, though sometimes we wonder.

Shimano Ultegra FD-R8000 Front Derailleur Gray Braze-On

Shimano Ultegra FD-R8000 Front Derailleur Gray, Braze-On

Shimano Ultegra FD-R8000 Front Derailleur Gray, Braze-On - To address this, shimano engineered a new design that increases the clearance between the front derailleur and rear tire and increases shifting responsiveness with more flexible cable routing. Shimano even sent a guide with each derailleur to gauge which way to run the cable to the anchor bolt, but the evolving rear hub spacing made this an untenable solution. The shift throw is reduced and the effort required to throw the chain to the big ring, even (or especially) while you’re exhausted and trying to bridge up, is reduced. The trickle down of dura-ace 9100 technology to ultegra r8000 11-speed drivetrains continues with the fd-r8000 front derailleur. The fd-r8000 front derailleur is constructed from a. Shimano redesigned it to have a lighter shift action, increased frame and tire clearance, and to work better with chain lines seen on road bikes with disc brakes and shorter chainstays. Cable routing was more particular with the longer arm derailleurs. The more compact design doesn’t come at a sacrifice of shift feel. Word is this design was born when shimano challenged its engineers to make a mechanical version of ultegra and dura-ace that performed well enough and was still able to hold its own against its electronic siblings, particularly the front derailleurs. Everything we love about the dura-ace mechanical front derailleur has carried over to the new ultegra version. The derailleurs longer arms, which house the cable anchor bolt and debuted on the ultegra 6800 and dura ace 9000 front derailleurs, allow for a lighter shift as the anchor point gives the cable increased leverage. Shimano claims that the new link construction matches the force curve of the hand more naturally to reduce effort at the end of shifting. The design worked well, but the industry trend towards wider tires and disc brakes pushed the rear end spacing out to 135 or 142mm. The fd-r8000 also includes a cable tension setting adjustment at the derailleur for a more precise and ease setup.
