    Replacing Shimano 5700 FD

    Hi,

    Currently have a Shimano 105 5700 FD 10 spd and looking to replace it with an Ultegra 6700-G 10 Speed. The 5700 FD has given me nothing but problems from day 1. 3 bike shops unable to fix. They all say that I've just got a bad one.

    Is it a direct replacement or do I have to worry about brifter compatibility?

    Thanks!

    'brifter' is a lame word.

    It's compatible.
    I work for some bike racers
    I've got some bikes, some guns,
    and a bunch of skateboards

    As cx said. 100% compatible. And it's SHIFTER not brifter.
    You can't fix stupid.
