    front derailleur adjustment issue

    I was trying to get my bike adjusted properly becuase it wont shift from the middle chainring into the smallest. I removed all tension from the cable and tried to adjust the low limit screw but the derailleur doesnt seem to move far enough to move the chain over. If i move it over manually it rubs really bad. any suggestions on how to fix this.

    Also the cable is pretty frayed so im going to replace it. any brand better than the next?

    Start with a really good cleaning check for small pieces of rock and dirt that may affect the travel range.
