chain rub in small ring

It happens in the first 1-4 cogs. The chain rubs the cage. What adjustment do I make?

If you mean the chain rubs the front deraillier while in the smallest four cogs, then you should do a step shift. By shifting the brifter about half way, you should here a small click, and the derailier moved slightly to the right.

It will rub like that on most bikes. Mine doesnt do it until the 2nd smallest cog.

Yes, that's exactly what I mean, sorry I wasn't clearer. I'll give that a shot tomorrow. Thanks

Daredevil,

it is the same as when you would do a half-shift on older friction-type shifters.

Hope it works for you.
