    105 5600 compatibility with new front mechs

    My wife's 105 5600 2x front mech just broke (a small chunk of the spring snapped off where it rested against the pull arm) and I was wondering which of the newer FDs would work as a replacement since the 5800 is 11s now? Would the Tiagra 4700 FD work? Or do I need to try and find an older 5600/5700 FD?
