    FSA bb and front derailleur question

    My front derailleur doesn't want to adjust properly to work with my FSA V-Drive with MegaExo BB. After some tinkering the deraileur works just fine with my low and mid gear but doesn't quite have enough travel to work on the high gear. It seems like the large chain ring is just a hair to far away. I have two spacers on the drive side. Removing one spacer from the drive side and adding it to the non-drive side seems like it would align the chainrings enough with the derailleur to allow me to get into high gear when needed. Is this a feasable way of doing things?

    Is there not enough adjustment range on your H limit screw?

    Yup, that's exactly my problem.

    Yep, I'd move one of the spacers from the DS to the NDS.

    Thanks! Swapped it out and the derailleur lined up perfectly.
