I'm not new to the bike sceine just the kind with gears .
I recently purchased a very entry level bike to get in the grouve with (Diamondback Response Sport). I'm interested however in tossing my front derailer and the associated gears. I basicly only use the center gear, and never touch the others. My rides aren't generally long or fast enough to necessitate that huge front spocket, and the hills here seem to go away w/out jumping down to the mile a minute tinny gear.
I've also noticed that when I stand up to peddle the chain often times jumps and skips. The derailers front and rear arount rubbing or clicking, and it does it even when my chain is strait from center to center. (Cheap derailer in the back I'm thinking).
I don't have the cash to toss on a nice rear derailor so I'm asking, is there a way to snug up a new but soft rear derailor? Mine are an Alivio out back, and a Acera up front.
Thanks for your time,
