The Ultegra line of components have long been known as Shimano's affordable, race-level road group, with plenty of trickle-down technology from the Dura Ace Series, but without the higher cost. Take for example the FD-6700 front derailleur. Designed for use with standard and compact doubles, this front derailleur delivers accurate and precise shifts for thousands of miles. This particular model is compatible with STI shifters that feature a "trim" setting to avoid cross-chaining in certain gear combinations.

Great front derailleur. Shimano quality and the weight is low for the weight weenies.
This derailleur is so far the best I have ever had, it is very easy to adjust together with the ultegra 6700 crank. Shifting is very smooth and easy. Never rubs with the chain when in the big ring. When paired with the 6700 shifter lever it also has that midlevel shif that is just awesome when you crosschain a bit. Five stars easily.
