    :confused: I'm replacing the front derailleur on my Jamis Zenith Comp with an upgraded unit. The Shimano specs are to tighten to 44-60 in-lbs. Does anyone know if this includes carbon frames, or is there a lower torque setting for carbon so it is not damaged. I believe that I read somewhere that it is usually a lower setting. Thanks!

    The owner's manual that comes with the frame usually lists these specs. If you no longer have the manual talk to your bike shop guys and they can get the specs from the manufacturer.
