    How do I adjust the front derailler?

    Just got a K2 Attack 1.0 and I'm not sure how to adjust the front derailler. When down shifting, it skips the middle sprocket and when shifting up you have to push the shifter really hard to get it to budge.

    I guess I'd need to tighten the line a bit and adjust the alignment of the control arm thing??
    Sorry, I know it's a pretty basic question but just not sure how to do it..!

    Park Tool is usually a good source, or get yourself a Zinn's Book of Mt Bike Maintenance, the link you want for now is http://www.parktool.com/repair/readhowto.asp?id=75
