Wondering if this is mount type I need as FD for my Specialized Epic Comp, direct mount:

Image is from a 2011 press release, but I'm assuming that the same/similar mount type is still available? This looks close to what's on my ride; didn't see this option in your offerings.

Thanks,
Scott

P.S. My bike is a 2012.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Used these for road tubeless, gravel races & cyclocross. No complaints about the tubeless connection (Piranha's for CX, Fusion III for Road). However, the rim dented inward significantly (yet still holds the air in for the tubeless tire), and is pretty much a goner after only 1 season.

Attractive shoe, stiff sole, cleans easily, too. It felt like my toes were being jammed pretty hard - especially compared to my smaller sized Northwave Aerlite S.B.S. road shoes, which ought to be similarly sized. Still, I'm hoping for these to stretch as they break in, and if so, I'd highly recommend these! I'm very happy w/my other two pair (Aerlite SBS as mentioned, and the GTX Celsius), so while the jury is still out, I hope to amend this rating w/a full 5 stars after some more miles & races!

I'm considering a new purchase, but I've lost confidence in Giro because of the adjuster in the rear. I can push the two "tabs" together to snug the fit, but as soon as I raise my head (as would be the cyclist's position), the adjusters release and the helmet loosens. I find myself reaching back and re-tightening constantly during my rides. I know the Pnuemo is a bit dated, but I'm disappointed to see the same fit system on Giro's current helmets. Main question: has anyone else had this same complaint, and has Giro acknowledged and addressed it?
