Front derailleur for 95 Canondale T700?

I'm looking for a triple front derailleur for 95 Canondale T700. The catalog spec's the bike with a "Shimano Alivio 95" with a Coda compact triple. I am moving a Deore mountain group over to this bike and realized that the Aluminum down tube will be to large for the front derailleur I have. The new rings will probably be 48-36-24 and I will be running Deore trigger shifters 7 or 8 speed, so I need to be SIS compatible. Thanks.

P.S the catalog spec a Deore LX on the 95 T1000. I'm measuring the tube at 31.9mm. will that work for a 31.8 band or am I looking for something else?

Its 31.8 for Cannondale, probably just tricky to measure. 😉 Id recommend the best FD you can easily find & afford, especially for a triple. Basically, I consider LX the lowest level Id want to use, with XT or XTR being slight upgrades.

Thanks. I saw a bunch of derailleurs on ebay listed as having 32.0 mm clamps, and was wondering.

I found a NOS LX on ebay for not much more than the average used one. It wont be a great visual match but this bike is going to end up pretty far from its original set up.

FWIW

My 1992 T1000 has a Deore XT with the Endless band clamp.

The clamp looks like this Deore DX clamp here : velobase Deore DX

Very nice. What tires are you running? My frame looked like I could fit 38mm, but I'm planning on 35mm to keep some clearence in the bank.

I just sold a very nice T700. A 38 would fit the front but the rear was limited to 32, IIRC. Can confirm 31.8 for the FD.
