I took my new El Fuego out for the first time yesterday... oh man is she pretty. I'm still getting used to the difference in geometry from my old bike, but our first date went well... a little nervous, somewhat tentative, lots of fondling, and... some misfires. "I swear, that's never happened to me before".
On the rough stuff, I'm getting some ghost shifting. I can't decide if that's due to suspension related cable stretch, improper chain length, improper sag adjustment on the shocks, or just new bits getting broken in and stretching.
Any advice on how I can narrow it down?
In case it helps...
