Trouble shifting into the large chainring (road bike)
Hi all -- This is my first foray into building a road bike. In comparison, I find building mtbs much easier!
I am running a 2x10 on my road bike. The crank is Tiagra, the FD is 105 and the chain is a 10-speed Dura Ace. After my second ride, I noticed I was having an issue upshifting in the front rings. My partner futzed around with it while I was at work and it was shifting fine. Rode her to school and I cannot shift into the large chainring. Come home, put her on the stand and played with the high limit screw. I also moved the FD up (1 and change mm away from the chainring) as it seemed a wee bit close. Shifts great!!
Today is my group ride and I shifted into the large chainring on my way to the ride. Great, it is working! Unfortunately after that, it was the last time I was able to.
I am just wondering if I need to keep riding in order to stretch the cables properly or if I should be adjusting something that I am missing out on. This just seems kind of strange to me.
Thanks for any advice.
