Also, be very careful when tightening the bolt to attach the derailleur to the braze-on mount. The threads in the derailleur are soft, and the bolt is short, so it's easy to strip the threads before you get the bolt tight enough to hold the derailleur securely in place.
My new FD-5703 is now in the trash instead of on my bike. I expected better from Shimano.
CONS: Difficult To Install, Flimsy Design
