You still may want an inline adjuster, but if you don't have it, here's the procedure I use (I don't use one): Disconnect cable from front derailleur Shift to small ring, large cog Adjust the lower limit screw to put 1mm of clearance between chain and inner cage. Turn the lower limit screw CW 1/2 turn (pushes cage further from chain) Reattach cable and ...

If you were able to shift into all of the gears prior to your adjustments then it would make sense that you need to readjust. It sound like you you have adjusted it too far outboard. I would take it in significantly so that when in 1st gear position on the shifter you are on the largest cog. From there you can make fine adjustments for shifting between ...

Sounds like you are getting slack during the ride. This will happen with new cables but if you get it every ride something then else is going on. My thought is that your barrel adjuster is not holding. Does it look like this? The barrel adjuster should have a lock nut or something to hold it in place. Mark the position with tape or a marker and ...
