A really swell item - a bottom pull (so "normal" for classic road bikes) Shimano Deore LX front derailleur that is NOS - came to us bulk packaged.  This derailleur has a 1 1/4 clamp (31.8mm).  If you want to use this on a typical 1 1/8" downtube (typical vintage steel size) you will need to get a shim - you can find these on Amazon or from many online sellers.  Doing so works great.  In fact, its less fussy to clamp on we think than many old vintage road front derailleurs which don't use a shim as those tend to be kinda fussy.  Then you have a great front derailleur that works on a world of bikes.  This derailleur is a crazy good value but we bought them at a super great price so we can sell them for a great price.

 

This is a great item for folks using a triple crank with rings simlar to a classic Mtb set up.  So something like a 26/36/46 for example should work great with this.  Many other arrangements and possibly some doubles may be happy with this too.  We find these old Mtb derailleurs seem a lot more powerful and less fussy than some of the modern Italian and Japanese counterparts.
