- Front Mech
I would say that it sounds like you are trying to shift from granny ring (inner) to middle but it does not engage and drops back to the granny ring?
I would say that your indexing is out – have you tried rotating the left shifter adjustment (clockwise) to take up some slack?Posted 6 years ago
To be honest I’ve not tried much, apart from checking there was no obvious damage to the mechanism or bent items etc.
However, I’ll give this a go. For some reason I’ve said I’ll do the weekender and was looking forward to it so a broken bike is not something I want right now.

Still a bit new to this biking thing so on the look-out for some information.
The front mech has been playing up recently. I think its a fairly standard (3×8 system). As I try to change from the smallest cog to the middle the chain just slips off, but it will jump from the smallest to the largest cog where I can step it down. This obviously doesnt make for fun riding.
Does this all mean that the actual mechanism has a fault or the middle cog?
Hope this is clear enough for someone to help.Posted 6 years ago
