I made some adjustments to the front derailer on my road bike as when I was in the big front gear and smallest low gear the chain was rubbing on the front derailer outer edge.
I followed guides on how to do this, have changed the position of my front derailer, adjusted the derailer screws and put everything back together. But I am unable to get the shifters for the front gears to have any affect on the derailer. The cable is reattached and as tight as I can get it, and I have tightened the barrel adjuster as much as I can yet I get no tension in the shifter at all. the cable itself feels tense and when I use my hand there is no issue with derailer movement.
What can I do to regain gear control?
