- Triban 5, Rear derailleur not fitting properly. Help needed asap.
Have you expanded the brake caliper quick release? or tweeked them in too far for them to work. I have made this mistake already. The brake blocks will trap the wheel giving the impression the dropout is knacked.
Loads of knowledge here too if you get stuck http://triban3owners.freeforums.net/Posted 4 years ago
Cheers cbike, I’ve given up for today and gonna sort it tomorrow but hoping that is the issue. Just didn’t seem right how the rear derailleur is sat.
Gonna be a pain in the arse sorting the Crud Roadracer mudguards out too.
Never doing work on a friends bike again, ever. Road over 2000 miles without cleaning or servicing it once and he’s been using some horrible grease that we use at work for our machines, The chain is pretty much solid, no wonder he was having issues with the gears shifting! I’ve road my mtb through local woods every day and not cleaned it for a couple of months and wasn’t this bad lol.Posted 4 years ago
Needing some help with a problem I’m having whilst working on a friends bike.
I can’t get the rear derailleur, Shimano Sora, to fit properly. There seems to be a notch where the derailleur mounts that is there so it sits flush with the drop-out but I can’t get it to fit properly. The limit screw, which is fully undone, is in the way.
What am I doing wrong?Posted 4 years ago
That’s an option was but it’s not my bike and it’s obviously not right?
was that about taking the end off the QR?
it’s perfectly alright, there’s nothing wrong with the frame or mech.
a quick thump on the top of the wheel will sometimes shift a QR nut past the mech if you’re in a hurry.Posted 4 years ago
Fair enough but still cant work why it dropped out fine before and now it wont budge.
maybe you undid the QR more and the nut was shifted further across to the drive side so that it cleared the raised bit of the mech where it meets the frame?
You won’t have to undo it much as the mech mount bit is slightly conical.
The rear mech is fine.Posted 4 years agoglobaltiMember
The problem is that the chainstays are quite short and if you fit a deeper tyre than the Btwin garbage that comes on it, the tyre comes up against the chainstay bridge preventing the wheel from moving far enough forwards for the QR to clear the derailleur, as shown in the pics above.Posted 4 years ago
