i have just purchased a shimano XT gear change system for my handle bars. no problems with installation. i hgave found though that when i change to go higher on the rear sprocket the gear goes lower. it says on the handlebar mechanism though that the gear has gone higher. i.e i can be in very high on the handle bar but it is 1st gear on the rear sprocket.
is this a known problem?? if so how can i fix this?? have i installed it wrong??
I think you'd probably get better luck with this question in the mechanic's forum.

The only problem appears to be that your shifting has changed paradigms, but your brain hasn't. Probably a combination of rapid-rise and non-rapid-rise components. It won't affect their function, just which number your shifter shows.
