SRAM Force Front Derailleur $74.00
Keep it in the family.
For all the big changes that have occurred with the redesign of SRAM Force components, the one place where things have barely changed is the front derailleur. The cage, the pivots, the adjusting screws, the clamp, and the weight remain the same. The only change is the finish. The derailleur is now finished in the new Zephyr Silver anodizing.
The outer cage plate of the Force front derailleur is precisely shaped to allow you to use all 10 cogs on your cassette while you're in the big chain ring with minimal chain rub. And when you're in the small chain ring the Force Double Tap shift lever will allow you one trim adjustment based on your chain angle, allowing you to use any cog in complete silence when you're in the small ring.
The Force derailleur can handle any chain ring differential up to 16 teeth. This means you'll use the same derailleur for a 53/39 crankset as you will a 50/36 or 50/34. No more need for a compact-specific front derailleur. The Force has full aluminum construction and titanium hardware. Available in braze-on, 31.8mm clamp, and 34.9mm clamp. The actual weight of the SRAM Force Front Derailleur: Braze-on is 88g. The 31.8mm clamp is 100g.

Why not - excellent!

Recently put this on my lady's bike - such a super deal-e-o at Competitive :) Flawless and dead on shifting - easy peasy set-up, and stays in adjustment.

ARe you able to take the clamp off if your frame is braze on? You don't have a braze on option for this derailleur.
That clamp is built in so you will need the braze on model. That being said if have the braze on you can buy a clamp to fit most any frame you may have.
Very nice front shifting
I have the SRAM Red gruppo on my bike, short of the front derrailleur, where I opted for the SRAM Force. This is primarily due to the steel cage on the Force vs. the Ti cage on the Red. I've also used the Rival front derailleur and there is a noticibly smoother difference going to the Force. After 1,000 miles on the new front der, I have not had to adjust it once. Great component!
