    If it has a removable collar, it's a braze on. Just order another derailleur.

    Your LBS should be able to tell you if Shimano has them in stock vs. the parts distributor they use. Because some Shimano stuff has to be ordered directly from Shimano.

    Is this the same bike as the last broken front derailleur thread?

    Do you have a way to post a picture of your broken derailleur? Cause, that would be helpful.

    I called Shimano and the tech said they do not make a direct replacement for the 4403 derailuir on the stock 52 t crank. I am going to have to upgrade the crank to a 50t and I have options. I am low on cash and the crank is good enufe to commute. I took off the derailuir and set the chain on the middle crank set.when I get some money I will drop it off at the bike shop so they can take it from there.thats it! The 52 t is th problem why they donít make a direct replacement because how the industry has evolved. PeAce thanks for your help.

    Get a 34.9 braze-on clamp and the Microshift FD-R539 braze on derailleur. That is your least expensive, most reliable option. When you start swapping cranks, bottom bracket, and derailleur, youíre just opening a can of worms. If Iím not mistaken, the cable pull on the new 50t compatible derailleurs is different than the shifter on your bike. If you have your part numbers right now, then trust me, this is the best option. If you want to chat more, PM me, Iíve done this repair twenty times in the last two years.

    I ordered the fd r539 brazed on. Will that derailuir fit my 4403 collar? I amuse the collar to derailuir is a universal fit. Thanks for your help !!
