Front Derailure

Question for the crowd...I have quite a bit of chain rub on the front derailure when I am on the upper crank. How do I adjust the derailure so that it doesn't rub anymore?

Truly a newbie here....

Thanks.

Try moving the shift lever a bit more after you've shifted up. If it's indexed (eg STI levers), and is slightly out of adjustment this second shift can make all the difference. Otherwise the upper limit stop screw needs adjusting
