    So frustrated. Cant get my stuff tuned.

    So I got x0 shifters to replace my x5 shifters. Both are 3x9 and I have a x7 on the rear and shimano on the front. First off I cant find a good diagram of how to properly rout the cables so not sure if that is done correctly. Besides that I cant seem to get the front dialed in. I can either get it to shift the top 2 gears or the bottom 2 gears but not all 3. I have messed with cable tension and barrel nuts as well as set screws. Any suggestions. I really dont want to have to pay a lbs to do somethign I should be able to.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Thanks will look at it. After screwing with it for a while I got it to shift for the most part. I need to do minor small adjustments to get it right, but atleast right now I have all gears.
