    NEWbie Front Derailleur Issues: HELP

    So I'm trying to adjust a front derailleur. I've watched some youtube videos and understand that there are some screws to do like a micro adjustment on it and I've tried it, but it's not working.


    Whats happening is, when I shift up to the high sprocket it wants to push the chain past that sprocket. When I adjust those little screws slightly it to where it fits on the big sprocket, it then wants to push the chain off of the bottom sprocket when I shift down or it will completely skips the middle sprocket.

    Any suggestions would help.

    Thanks for your time.

    Read this. It sounds like you are fighting improper limit setup as well as improper cable tension.

    WOW, that is exactly what I needed. I'm going to go try these instructions and see if it resolves my problem. I wish I knew this was out there already. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
