So I have had this K2 Disco Monkey (all Shimano XT drive train) for 6 or 7 years now and it seems like the only time I truly had great shifting performance from the front derailleur is when I first had the LBS install it. After that first summer it had a lot of shifting problems namely going from the middle cog to the innermost cog.
One LBS tech told me that the frame has a really odd design so you actually have to toe in the FD to help it shift correctly. However the different LBS techs I have taken the bike too have not had much luck in getting the FD to shift right and they usually tell me how much of a ***** it is to work with.
Has anyone found a trick or knows of a better FD that would help me out? It seems like the the protruding section inside the FD that pushes the chain into the higher gear is about a quarter inch too short to push on the chain while in the middle chain ring.
Thanks for any help and sorry for my lack of mechanical knowledge with bikes.
