SRAM X0 2x10 Front Derailleur

After the not so successful attempt at switching out the Goblin's SRAM X7 front derailleur for the Shimano XT, I managed to resell and recoup most of my money for the XT on eBay.  However this meant it was now firmly back to the drawing board.  After browsing, researching and thinking about it some more I figured my best bet would be to replace like for like wherever possible.  So keeping my search within the SRAM family I was initially looking for a decent price on and X9 FD, however a Google search threw up this beauty for sale brand new and shipped for a shade over $40:

Happily for me the derailleur arrived in the mail yesterday and was packaged up pretty well.

Before and After

Thank fully fitting was a straight forward process and adjustment took no time at all.  Now just hoping that this knee gets better soon and I can hit the trails!
