Ive been bodging with my front mech for 12 months and its still not right. Theres one last roll of the dice which Id like to take advice on before one of us does the decent thing with a ritual disembowelling cutlass - which I hope isnt me
OK the facts:
Road set up, Shimano 105 double
Chain rubs on outside (ie away from bike) of cage in 2 highest gears ie the 2 small ones
Adjustment screws are all fine, and more movement has the chain off
Cage is aligned with chain properly
Its currently as good as its been after winding up the cable tension possibly a bit too tight, as in when I shift down at the front to the smaller ring its a bit sluggish to make the shift
The next step is to move the mech either up or down
Ive tried every other variable leaving this as my last shot
The question is which way first?
Any ideas well received, especially informed ones
I just cant work out where its rubbing and how it will change by moving it in this plane hence the question
But what I do know is that every step of the bodge pathway usually results in double the pain than leaving well alone!
