adjusting derailleur cable tension??
I just finished installing my derailleurs on my bike. Two questions...
1. I have a Cannondale Caad5 frame. Is it common for derailleur cables that are along the down tube to be so close to the frame or am i being anal? It seems like in the long run it will scratch the frame.
2. Is it ideal to keep the cables as snug as possible without it shifting the gears? So after I install the derailleurs, should I use the barrel adjusters to get it as tensioned as possible?
