    Front derailleur issues on XM8

    I've had my XM8 for a couple of months and the last 2 rides the front derailleur is rubbing in the lowest gear. When I get it on the bike stand I tune it a little and it goes away but then when I get back on it the rubbing comes back.
    I'm thinking it's due to the sag when I'm on the bike but can't figure out how to get it tuned properly.

    Has anyone experienced this problem?

    Are you tuning it with the little screws or by adjusting the cable? Try adjusting the derailleur (from the cable) so it's on the towards the bigger gears, not centred. Then if it slips a bit when you go for a ride it should be good. I had the same problem, but on a different bike. Not a high-tech fix but it worked for me.

    Good Luck!

    Yeah I was adjusting the H and L it was getting so bad that it was almost jumping gears but I'll try just with the cable and I can do that while riding the bike. I was worried that this type of suspension was sagging too much causing the erratic shifting
