I have a new bike (about a month old). It has Shimano 105 2x11 group set. The shifting works fine but I have noticed something odd on the front derailleur shifting.
I am in the big cog at the front. I shift to the small cog by pushing the lever as far inwards as it will go. It shifts nicely to the small cog.
However, I can then push the lever inwards some more and the front derailleur will “shift” a bit further. This doesn’t affect the gears at all as far as I can tell.
I have put the bike on a stand and done this whilst watching the front mech closely and sure enough, I shift to the small cog (really making sure to push the lever all the way across) and I can see the mech move. But then, I push the lever again and it shifts a bit more and the moves a My partner has almost the same bike with same group set and her’s does the same thing.
Hopefully I explained that in a way that makes sense.
Is it normal?
