I'm working on adjusting my front derailleur; Shimano 105 group set 5700 series. On reading on the net and also watching a couple of online youtube videos there is comments about the barrel adjustment used to either tighten or loosen the cable to ensure that indexing occurs.
Now what I'm confused with is that the notes often refer to increasing the wire tension via a counter-clockwise turn. The question is counter clockwise relative to facing which way ? For an inline barrel adjuster depending if i'm looking down from the shifter on the handle bars, or looking up from the cable end of the derailleur the direction is different.
Is there an easy way to know which way to turn ?
