adjust rear derailler help

Postby elderone » Fri Feb 01, 2013 15:58 pm

When in the biggest ring on the back on hills the bottom of the derallier clips the spokes so i cant use that gear.
Does anyone know how to move it over a tad so there is no spoke contact.
thanks

This is the one time that you are allowed to touch the limit screws.

All you need is a screwdriver. If you look directly behind the bike so you can see the rear mech and cassette you simply need to turn the limit screw with the screwdrive until it pulls the mech away from the spokes.

Turn it and you will see the mech move in or out depending on the direction you turn the screw.
