Front Derailleur Troubles.

4 posts in this topic

Brand new bike.

Had to adjust the height of the front derailleur, it was set too low and would rub on the biggest ring. Set low and high point, aligned the center and went out for a test ride. Everything seems fine but on the way down from the biggest ring to the middle ring, the shifter skips right past the middle ring and drops down to the smallest.

Any ideas on how to fix?

Shimano Claris, flat bar setup.

is it parallel with the cogs? Are you able to upload a picture for us to see? preferably from side on and one from above.

Sounds like it needs more cable tension. 
How close does the mech cage sit to the chainrings in first and third? upload a photo in first and first and third and what ever your highest gear is.
