Can I replace a Shimano RD-TY15 with Shimano Tourney TX?

Main thing with gears is that they have the same number of gears, and that the cage is the same length. Also the RD TY15 has a built in hanger.

The Tourney pictured has a built in hanger (below link) just make sure the replacement does.

Adjusting the tracking for a shimano 515 revoshiftrear rear gearchange difficult to see what the 2 small adjustiing screws do I only get 5 of my 6 speeds

The screws adjust how far the derailer can move. If you can't get to the gear on the outside then loocen the screw in the outside. If you can't get the biggest gear loosen the other screw. For most derailers, loosening it will do what you want but watch the derailer move. If it moves the wrong way, turn the screw the other way. If you still need some help, I suggest you contact your local bike shop for help.

I need a set of instructios to set up shimano sl-ty15-a gears

Adjusting any shifters or derailleurs is pretty much the same once you factor in how the levers operate...

Or use your favorite search engine and look for "how to adjust shifters" for videos.

Could be either that your rear derailleur needs adjusting and/ or your chain has an issue such as needing lubrication or replacing.

Best to take into a bike shop and have them look at it.

I am having problems adjusting a pair of Shimano XT center-pull cantilever brakes. Do you know where I can get a manual for these? has detailed basic manuals for all their components.

What are you having problems with adjusting?


On the side of the cantilevers there is a tiny 2mm set screw, these adjust tension and will help to balance the two brakes for centering.

Make sure the cable assembly is centered over the brakes.

Pads - if you can't get them to stay in place you may have to replace the conical washers or the pads or both.

I bought a mountain bike with Shimano Altus gears over the net with most of the assembly in place. Have indexed the rear gears which work fine. Did the same for the front deraileur works changing up but...

There are a couple of possible problems. You can try backing off the cable tension a little bit at the shifter and running back and forth through the gears adjusting as you go till it hits 2nd coming down.You can also try backing off the High limit screw on the derailleur. This will allow the shift to start a little farther from the bike hopefully hit 2nd. Hope this helps.

Good evening - I have Shimano Alivio Gears on my Cannondale F6 MTB and the gears are trying to change down a gear on the rear cogs (go to the larger cog) and need adjusting - which screw is the one to...

Neither screw is for mis-shifts. Those are limit screws for the largest and smallest cogs. Tweaking the cable tension will usually bring in the indexing...

It sounds like your cable is/was a smidge too tight.

Can you replace Shimano Tiagra clamp-on front derailleur with Shimano 105 clamp-on front derailleur?

Hi, if it has the same amount of gears usually 3 then you will have no problem at all swapping them over, now as long as the frame thickness is the same or the new derailleur can take up the slack on lock onto the frame securely then you will have no problems what so ever.

The only thing you need to make sure you get right is the allignment and the cable tension correct so it changes the gears as it should do, it may take some adjusting but its not to difficult to do, as long as you run the cable correctly and you have the cable pulled through enough then the gears should change just fine.

once its fitted you can then adjust the cable after to ensure it is changing gears properly, the only problem you may have is if the cable is stretched or damaged as this can cause the gear change to be slow so if you are unsure of the cable then replace with new as its costs next to nothing for a new cable, but apart from that you should be able to do it no problems as its an easy job to do, just make sure the cable runs where it should do if you do change the cable as long as you do that you should have it done in couple of hours.

let me know if you have any problems ok
