Shimano CX70 CX 2X10 Front Derailleur


No more "OK" shifting on your cross bike, the CX70 was designed to be the cyclocross front derailleur by matching perfectly with today's popular ring combinations. Most cyclocross racers are running 36-46, 38-48 or similar ratios which don't shift properly with a normal road derailleur. The CX-70 derailleur solves that problem by shaping the cage to give the best possible shifts with those chainring ratios The precise cage design is perfectly suited when using Shimano's CX70 crankset or many other cross cranksets.  Plus, its offered in a top pull cable configuration, so lose that front derailleur pulley and some extra weight!
  • Designed for cyclocross
  • Works with Shimano double shiftlevers

It took a long time for a proper cyclocross front derailleur to hit the market in a top pull cable routing version. If you have a frame / bike with a bottom pull derailleur, and a pulley to change the cable orientation to accomodate your bike with cables along the top tube, this item in the top pull version will allow you to remove the pulley and route the cable directly to the derailleur, resulting in much faster, smoother shifting. Less cable to gunk up with mud and you take the friction of the roller out of the equation.

Nice for the money
The CX70 front der. looks very nice. The fit and finish is very good. The cage swings smoothly without any catches. The moving parts are tight as they should be, but still move easily. The spring gives a the proper amount of tension to ensure return while still being easy to move. Once installed the der. operated very well giving good shifts up and down. They only thing that I would criticize would be a permanent rivet on the rear of the cage rather than a screw to make taking it off easier. Since that rarely needs to happen it is not a big deal.
So, the der. is well made, looks good and works well. I am a happy guy.

How might this work with my compact (50/34t) 105 cranks and ultegra shifters?
Spychic on May 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This derailleur is optimized for the 46/36T combination, but sadly is the only top-pull road derailleur Shimano sells. Your mileage may vary but my personal favorite is the FD-6770 if you don't need top pull.
