    Adjusting X.7 Derailluer......need some help!

    Hey guys,

    My brothers bike is setup with X.7 stuff. He was complaining of shifting issues so I figured I'd check it out. He did bend the hanger a little bit but I think I got it strightened out.

    Problem is I don't think the Low (or L) screw does anything. I don't have much in the way of adjustment in that screw. So far I got the bike shifting OK up to the last (going from small to bigger ring) 2-3 rings on the back. It may just be a cheap chain but I swapped out the Sun-Race JUJU cassette for a LX one to see if it would help any (it did, but not a ton).

    If it's riding rough on the larger rings in the cassette what should I look for? I've always setup new stuff from Shimano and it's been a piece of cake. This isn't that hard either but his bike has full length housing (no regular cable stops) so I can't prestretch the cable or anything. I did get it shifting good enough just for the glitch I can't fix while shifting into like 7 to 8.

    Any ideas??? He also has X.7 shifters as well if that helps any.

    Just installed an X.9 Rear Derailleur and X.7 Shifters - really liking it.

    The adjustment knob is on the trigger shifter instead of on the Rear Derailleur (like Shimano). Rotate that know a click or two in either direction until you have smooth shifting throughout the gears.

    Good luck.
