Instead of worrying about whether your 1x drivetrain is set to match your upcoming ride, a classic 2x system is a satisfying option that can take some of the doubt out of the steeper slopes. The Shimano XT FD-M8020-D 2x11 Front Derailleur not only opens up your gear range, but also mounts to your direct mount platform on the seat tube to provide that extra room for wider tires and innovative suspension design that some clamp-on derailleur systems crowd out.
