Front Der Adj Help
I have a 2000 Lemond Zurich with Ultegra, 3 chainring. My front derailleur was rubbing on my large chainring (it would stop if I pressed on the shifter even though the chain didn't shift any further).
I looked at the threads here and the Park Tools site and went to adjust the front der. The height was ok. Next, I noticed that the cage was out of alignment - the front was much closer to the chain than the rear - so I loosened the bolts and turned the clamp so that the cage was about parallel to the chain.
This moved the cage in too far so the chain rubbed against the der cage, so I loosened the screw that holds the shifting wire and pulled it a bit tighter. The der seemed to move in towards teh bike when I loosened the screw. Now, the chain is fine in the small chainring, rubs in the middle chainring, and won't shift to the large chainring. I tried loosening the wire back near where it started but that didn't help. I also tried adjusting the H and L screws but cannot get enough travel.
Can someone help me with the steps I need to take to get the front der working properly again? I assume I somehow need to reset the tension on the wire, but I am not sure how to do it and thought I should ask before experimenting. After that, I imagine I will need to set the L and H screws to control the derailleur movement.
Thanks in advance. I probably won't see this until after work tomorrow but I appreciate your assistance.
