    New question here. Front shifter problem - only able to use 2 speeds

    Hello
    I wondered what this knob: Name:  eLITM90.jpg

    is good for on my Shimano Deore fd-m610 front shifter and loosened and tightened it today, to see what happens. Afterwards, I realized that I'm now only able to change between 2 speeds, the big chainring and the middle one. When I'm trying to downshift on the small chaining, the shifter does not click. The downshifting-lever moves towards the handler bar, but nothing happens. The red indicator also remains in the same place(middle). I tried to adjust the knob in all ways but could not get it back. The bike is pretty new.
    Any thoughts ?

    Is there a switch on the bottom of the shifter to change it from 3x mode to 2x mode? If not, you've probably just mucked up the cable tension and it needs to be readjusted.

    SL-M610-L does have a mode converter switch. Make sure you haven't accidentally switched it over to 2x mode.

    Yes, there is ! Thank you very much guys, this was the problem. I didn't know my shifter has such a feature. Does it have any use on a 3*n speed bike ?

    it is so you can switch to 2X, like if you replace the big ring with a bash guard.
