I just got 26 inch Huffy mountain bike at Walmart. It looks fine except front derailleur spring is too tight. I checked everything. Cable is moving fine, I checked derailleur on my similar bikes, so more or less I confident that derailleur spring is too tight. It makes it very difficult to shift it into the highest gear.
I was thinking to replace spring, but looks like whole derailleurs are not too expensive. So my question how do find correct replacement for my derailleur: SR Sunrun 42T. For example, would this one work: ebay.
Also given that this is new bike, should I just return it to Walmart or try another one? I am concerned that for this price there will be always something to replace even on the new bike
I tried to loosen H and L screws completely. On front derailleur it is easy to see how they work and I can confirm that I set them temporarily to provide to limiting at all.
I also tried disconnecting cable and handle twists freely without any problems. So if it is routing issue, then it is probably something beyond my area of expertise, I can only check something obvious.
