So the last few times I've tried to attack a problem on my bicycle, I've managed to make a complete mess of things. My previous attempt at bicycle tuning was a front derailer height adjustment. It was too high, so I just sat down at my bike and undid the FD clamp without any preparation. Things didn't turn out too well, the cable was still tensioned and the FD was promply yanked downwards. I had to wheel it in to the LBS to get it working again, but they didn't adjust the derailleur height for me. My friend picked up the bike for me.
What do I need to do before I try and adjust this cursed derailer? Do I need to shift down into a certain gear combo? I'm reading this article http://www.viccycles.co.nz/index.htm...Question&ID=99 and wondering if I can just try and follow its instructions. Then again, I've never turned a pair of limit screws in my life, and am a little afraid to try.
All I need is a little confidence, and a set of good instructions for someone who really doesn't know much.
I've got a triple crankset with a Sora front derailer.
