So I've about written myself off at getting the front/rear derailleur to shift like a dream. I'm working with all SRAM X9 gear on a 3x10. *I've watched the pinkbike and other movies but still having trouble wrapping my head around getting this perfect. I might throw in the towel and take to the lbs for help I don't have a shop stand which is also making it difficult.
I've got it about 90% of the way I think. Dealt with high/low limit screws and cable adjustment. I got the rear der to limit at the low cog nicely and not jump onto the frame. I can only get it to shift into the second to largest rear cog. The bike came with one of those noob plastic discs to keep the chain from going into the spokes. Any chance that's offsetting and not letting the der go into the large cog? *It doesn't shift very smoothly through the mid rings in the cassette either*
The front der has been a headache as well. At this point I got it to where it will shift from granny to mid, mid to granny, mid to large, but it hesitates and sometimes won't shift from large to mid. What adjustment do I need to make I fix this?
Any tips for a noob with fairly handy wrenching skills?
