sticking front derailleur
I did a search for a similar problem, but couldn't find one.
I've been riding the heck out of my new Allez Elite and have noticed something recently. Going from the small to big chain ring is really smooth, but trying to go from the big to small is a chore. I really have to push on the small lever, and even then I get a series of rough clicks, not a smooth shift.
The bike in only about 2 weeks old, so I'm sure the cables are starting to stretch and will be adjusted on my first free tune-up, but I wanted to see if it was something I could take care of on my own.
Thanks in advance.
