okay, so sorry this is my first post and all, but this is pretty much gonna eclipse all other thoughts till i get this figured out.
so i'm setting up my (first) mtb. i have experience with road bikes, at least a little, and this is a problem i haven't come up against before.
when i put the second length of housing on for the rear derailleur (between the top tube and the seatstay), the cable tension seems to get messed up.
when i click up on the shifter, the cable tightens just fine. but when i click down and the cable loosens, instead of feeding through the housing, it seems to sort of kink and get caught and all the slack is between the first and second lengths of housing--none gets to the derailleur to let it out.
i first assumed the housing was the wrong length, but after trying a couple different lengths, became convinced that the housing length wasn't the issue. but what? that's the question i can't figure out.
and that's where i turn to you. any ideas? this is starting to really get aggravating....
