Turns out this derailleur needs a 'standard mount' derailleur pad/hanger. I have currently a direct mount. The Canyon representative thought the SRAM hanger was for 10 speed. To me, it is now clear that a 'SRAM' pad/hanger is the same as a Shimano 'standard mount'. So, I purchased the SRAM hanger (aka standard mount) from Canyon and it works!

When the shifting skips over a cog on the cassette gears, this is because the derailleur hanger (or less often, the derailleur cage) is misaligned. That is, the small sacrificial tab of aluminium which is between the frame and the derailleur proper. This can happen easily on any bike if it is mishandled or the mech strikes a rock etc., the age of the bike ...

No, won’t work. Edit: To be more precise: The indexing will be off. The 11 speed road shifters pull more cable for each gear step (each “click”). So you’ll have shifted through the whole 10 speed cassette after 8 or 9 clicks. You won’t be able to shift to certain gears reliably, there will be lots of noise and ghost shifting. Similar to badly adjusted cable ...

I assume that you have a friction shifter? A friction shifter is one that does not click into an indexed position. You just adjust it until the derailleur is lined up where you want it. Assuming this is the case, the brake cable housing is what you should be using because it was the stuff that was around when those derailleurs were designed. The ...

No. This will not work. 11 speed shifters will not pull the correct incremental length of cable for the 10 speed derailleur to move the correct distance to index the chain on each sprocket. Any Shimano 105 or Ultegra 10 speed shifters are compatible. These are not too hard to get hold of (at least that's my experience the USA). Beware that the current Tiagra ...

I assume you have two chainrings? Most road bike shifters have a third “trim” position for the front derailleur. It moves the derailleur towards the middle and is not intended to actually shift the chain. When you ride the big-big or small-small chainring/sprocket combinations the chain can rub on the front derailleur. The trim position is there to avoid ...

Yup - I've had this exact experience on an Alfine 11. If you pedal in smooth circles and maintain the pedal pressure, its possible to shift a long way through the gears before the gearbox catches up. At that point the gearbox will quickly move across up to 5~7 gears in one quick movement, which can be a massive drop in pedal cadence and is able to upset the ...

If the bike is new, it's probably cable stretch All bike have a "settle in" period where the cables stretch, the bearings settle, the brake pads wear in, etc. However, this doesn't mean you have to take it to a bike shop. (most likely) all it needs is the cable to be tensioned. I would suggest taking it to a bike shop if you're unsure about ...

It sounds a little like you are shifting while pedaling. That's the opposite of how internal hubs work and will tend to cause the shift to happen delayed or never, and if done habitually for long enough is bad for the hub. If you've got the yellow mark dialed and you're shifting only while coasting, and it's happening as you get into the slacker cable ...

It's a nice piece of history you have there. You will find that some of the newer generation Dura Ace final gear outer (the section closes to the derailleur) is sometimes supplied in this type, as is stuff right at the bottom of Shimano's range, IE Tourney. The main advantage is that it is very flexible which is needed for that final curve. The reason it ...

I looked at some pictures of the bike. The thing that fits most of your symptoms is that when the FD cable is under tension, it does something to the alignment of the guide plate that the cables are wrapping around, pulling it closer in against the frame such that the RD cable suddenly has tension relieved from it and therefore can't make it up to the big ...

It sounds like you are having trouble downshifting from any larger gear to a smaller one. If a rear derailleur won't go from a larger gear to a smaller gear it's because: The cable is binding preventing the derailleur from getting enough slack The derailleur spring is too weak Starting from a smaller gear on a 105 rear derailleur and moving to a larger ...

This sounds like a classic case of the shift cable hanging up in the housing. As the shifter releases cable increments to shift to smaller sprockets, the derailleur spring cannot pull the cable though the housing properly. You can try removing, cleaning and lubricating the cable. Replacing the cable and housing is the proper solution though, and is ...

I assume you mean that it is rubbing on the inside, and that you want the FD to be closer to the bike. In this case it might be that you have cable tension causing problems. You should adjust the L screw without cable tension. You can simply loosen the cable bolt to help with this, so that only the L screw is adjusting the start position, not the cable If ...

They very likely were talking about your front shifter's trim stops. Your shifter has 3 or 4 positions despite there only being two chainrings. As you shift around in back, the angle that the chain enters the front derailleur changes. This can cause rub. The trim stops exist to change the front derailleur's position enough to eliminate the rub. In other ...

The trainer comes with a 11-speed road freehub body, that is a bit wider than the "classical" Hyperglide freehub body. If I'm not wrong, you have a 10-speed cassette, so you need to install a 1.8mm spacer before installing your cassette. Did you install this spacer? Note that in general, you may need 2 spacers when mounting a 10-speed cassette on a ...

CS-HG500 is one of the ten-speed cassettes that doesn't come with a 1mm spacer, which is always the first thing to check when significant trainer shifting interchange problems happen with 10-speed. But it doesn't apply here. The next thing to check is whether the wheel has got a 10-speed cassette installed on an 11-speed freehub body, and if so whether the ...

I agree that your symptoms are not explained by insufficient cable tension. Alignment issues are a viable cause. From the rear of the bike, observe the derailleur cage while at both ends and the middle of cassette. The cage should be straight up and down--parallel to the cassette cogs--and the upper, guide pulley wheel should run directly underneath the ...

Regardless of the derailleur or drivetrain type in question, the purpose of a chain sizing procedure based on large/large plus one link is to find the chain size where the rear derailleur is so extended that if it were one link shorter, the frame, hanger, and/or derailleur would be destroyed. Using that as your target chain length has different amounts of ...

I've had an Alfine hub, where the red/yellow lines weren't exactly right. I had to tighten the wire so it was just out of position, then shifting was much better. Don't assume the mark is perfect, you may need to twiddle it to get the best-sounding changes.

No. The lever action is not adjustable. And consider that if it were, you'd need to push harder over the shorter stroke to achieve the same effect.

I suggest you keep complaining to your dealer. Those Shimano gear hubs can be finnicky and quality control is not great - sometimes there is just a subtle manufacturing defect which causes bad shifting. For reference, I had a much more expensive Shimano hub replaced on warranty twice before I got one that worked properly. But once correctly set up and if the ...

From what you describe, the problem could the B-screw (derailleur tension screw). If the derailleur tension is set too low (screw too tight), the chain sits too far from the sprockets and it can have trouble jumping from one sprocket to the other, especially on the smaller ones. Otherwise, if the screw is too loose, the upper pulley can be too close to the ...

Best guess is bent derailleur hanger. It's a quick and inexpensive repair for your bike shop. It does require a special tool.

This sounds like a situation where you should have a professional bike mechanic look at the problem. If you have attempted to resolve the problem by adjusting both the correct limit screw (you did make sure you were adjusting the correct limit screw, right?) and the indexing via the barrel adjuster, then something else is wrong. One possibility is that ...

That's called an error. Two chainrings means you have a front derailleur. The LBS person is simply incorrect, or possibly something was missed in the speaking/hearing. Your bike spec is at https://konaworld.com/rove_al_650.cfm and clearly says "Shimano Claris 8 speed" with 34/50 tooth chainrings. Find a better shop, or search this site for ...

I believe TS means Top Swing and the digit refers the chain stay angle range (3 for 63-66 degrees or 6 for 66-69 degrees). For example, see the data for the FD-T4000-TS6 here: https://bike.shimano.com/en-EU/product/component/alivio-t4000/FD-T4000-TS6.html and for the FD-T4000-TS3 here: https://bike.shimano.com/en-EU/product/component/alivio-t4000/FD-T4000-...

I recently purchased (new old stock?) a Shimano LX M580 3x9 Front Derailleur, 44 tooth max chainring size, 22t max capacity, so works well for 44/32/22 crankset. There are older models out there, whether in stores or on places like ebay.

If you can return the front derailleur, it would be the easiest. Maybe the M3100 can handle your crankset, as shimano is known to be conservative in their specs, but it might not be the best (the cage can too short for example). Your crankset is closer to the trekking ones, so there is certainly a front derailleur in this product range (FD-Txxxx) that ...

Sounds to me like you've got Campagnolo-sized shifter ends. The difference is subtle but definite. Left is Shimano, Right is Campagnolo. Not sure how you're measuring, using a ruler might explain the difference. The common-quoted diameters are Shimano shifter end barrel diameter: 0.173" (4.39 mm) Campag shifter end barrel diameter: 0.159" (4.04 ...
