Question about Mountain Shimano Alivio Front Bike Derailleur Bicycle Part 129
Having problems shifting up gears on the front deraillier.Shimano say to turn adjustment screws but the are not touching anything even when screwed all the way in.How do I get the screws to touch the other componants and so adjust the gears?.Any help is greatly appreciated.
Forget the screws as those are more for fine tuning once you are close to having it set correctly. Where the shift cable connects to the shifter on the bars you will typically find an adjustment knob (note that you may have the same type of adjustment knob where the cable meets the gear shift mechanism also) which the cable rides in. You will make much larger jumps in adjustment when using this method as opposed to using the screws located on the gear changing mechanism. Best of luck to you on the fix!!
