Taking my first swing at building a road bike. Everything is complete except for my front derailer. I seem to be having issues with the cable tension. I connect the cables, set the low stop, but when I get to set my high stop there is not enough cable tension to keep the inside of the derailer cage from rubbing. So I re-tension the cable so that the chain is clear of the cage. After I do this I have trouble getting the spring to pull the chain onto the middle chain ring.
Any tips? It just occurs to me, should I do my initial adjustments in a different gear, i.e. middle chain ring? Then set the low and high stops subsequently.
