Hi all,

Am having major problems setting up the rear mech adjustment. The Hi & Lo screws are fine its the cable adjustment for up and down.

Is there something different to normal set up, it just wont click through the gears properly. Its a new cable and been lubed.

Any help would be good.

    Setup is no different to any other.

    Sounds like poor routeing,to much friction or just poor set up.

    Which way are you having shift issues. Pulling the cable with the over or with the spring pulling it?

    No different to any other Shimno mech. Could you be more specific - what is actually happening, or not happening.

    Am thinking its the outers,

    It seems to change down ok but its the up... only seems to have a barrel adjuster on the mech not on the shifter????

    So only half a cable change then.

    That will be he problem.

    You only need one adjuster.

    What is up and what is down.

    Up to 1 or up to 789?

    Up is small to large and down is large to small....

    thought 1 adjuster was right, will do outers that should sort it out...

    Up in a car is to a higher number gear isn't it.......

    So it will shift to the smaller gears OK but not the largers.

    Is it a rapid rise mech which shifts to the biggest gear with no cable pull? If not it is NOT a cable issue, just your setup.
