- Skipping middle ring when shifting down
shifter is a tripple. I’ve tried slackening off the cable. There are no kinks in the outer (all new), I thought it was my X5 shifter, so fitted a (new) X7 shifter that was kicking around, nothing.
Not impossible that both my old shifter and new one are worn/faulty. Should I try another shifter?
Thought it might be the mech, but there’s nothing too them really, and it’s free enough.Posted 5 years ago
Took it to the LBS, he had a minor fiddle and realised that it was shifting in to the big ring without the lever clicking in to the 3rd position. (so it was in ring 3 but lever position 2).
Just had to push the lever a bit further when shifting to 3.. sorted free of charge.
Got it home again, and it’s still doing it!!! 😥Posted 5 years ago
Limit screws are set so the relevant cages clear the chain by 1mm.
I’ve set the tension with my hand with the chain in the small front ring, and the index screw half way out.
If I play with the index screw I can get it skipping middle ring on the way down or not going from small to middle… Nothing in betweenPosted 5 years ago
