My SORA front derailleur cable broke (after gear change difficulties for several tens of kilometres, and ineffective cable length adjustments). I replaced the cable, but I still had to push the gear change lever very hard to change chain wheels (which is when I found this web page). The culprit was the plastic cable guide screwed onto the frame under the ...

Chris- first culprit is the barrel adjuster. New cables tend to strench. As a result, small adjustments need to be made to cable tension to keep shifting 100% dialed in. Doing this at home is fairly simple, and there are many great tutorials online about how to do this yourself, here is a link to a great video from art's cyclery. if you still have trouble ...

If you want to run drop bars and don't care if you actually have brifters or not, I've had a really good experience using Gevenalle Shifting system. It mounts bar end shifters on the front of brake levers and offers configurations for Shimano compatible 9/10/11 speed setups and use a friction shifter for the front (you wouldn't need a new front derailleur). ...

Follow these steps: Tighten the bolt and remember which direction and/or rotation the front derailleur is affected. Readjust so that when tightened, the front derailleur is at optimum desired position, i.e. 2-3 mm above the 3rd chainring when at closest position to 3rd chainring, and parallel to the chainring. There are of course combinations of front ...

Isn’t your front derailler simply mounted way too high? As a rule of thumb when shifted to the big chainring it should be ~2mm above the big chainring and parallel to it.

Well, for one thing I would suggest trying to fix this problem while your chain is on your largest (highest) gear. Not only will you not have to worry about the cage hitting or being too close to your cranks, but usually I find that by making it fit with my chain on that highest gear, the other gears pretty much sort themselves out. For securing the ...

I don't see any problem with doing this on your bike if you use Shimano drifters. Generically there are two areas you'll need to consider: The actuation ratio of the shifters, and The brake pull. Shimano 9-speed road and mountain derailers use the same actuation ratio. You should be OK here. You don't mention which Surly touring frame you have so I ...

While the Triace A310 is an entry level bike I wouldn't put it in the same class as a Walmart BSO (bicycle shaped object). It doesn't appear to be a bike brand common to the U.S. Your best bet would be to remove the hanger and take it to your local bike shop. Most shops have a wall chart that has full size photos of the 50-60 most common types. You match ...

That's because Triace is a BSO (Walmart bike). I'm surprised one would have a replacable derailleur hanger. If it does have a removable derailleur hanger, you're likely going to have try a generic derailleur hanger (disclaimer: no affiliation, never bought from them) or if it had quick release (unlikely), something like Problem Solvers' Universal ...

I think it's the trimming function on STI shifter as you have a Tiagra shifter set (at least in the UK) You can adjust the front derailleur's adjusting barrel and move the derailleur a little bit to Low, so that it wouldn't rub on the chain when it's at trim level. Then you adjust the Low limit screw to make sure it wouldn't swing the chain off the small ...

The number of clicks is a logic test. You start on gear one. Click once and you are on gear 2. Click 8 times and you are on gear 9.

The shifter has a broken pawl mechanism inside that prevents it from shifting up (to smaller, harder cogs) reliably, when the rear derailleur cable is under tension. This is causing the rear derailleur to shift up 2-3 gears at a time for every use of the shifter. Given the difficulty in fixing shifters a replacement one is the course of action that has ...
