I'm having issues getting good alignment out of my front derailleur (triple, braze-on).
It's a low-end Shimano (R443), and the rear/tail of the cage is the closest to the chainrings. I'm used to the top of the derailleur being closer to the chainrings. As a result, I have to raise the derailleur ridiculously high so that the back of the cage doesn't rub the chainring when I'm on the middle chainring. With such a gap between the top of the chainring and the front part of the derailleur, shifting is pretty poor.
Is this a problem with the derailleur or my braze-on? Any way to fix it?
