Tiagra FD Cabling Questions
I'm fitting a Tiagra triple FD (4403) for the first time. On testing, the chain moves smoothly from small (30) to middle (42) chainring and then climbs reluctantly to the large (52) chainring. It goes down through the rings OK, but then the cable slackens and on the next test it only goes as far as the middle ring. Clearly there is something wrong with my cabling job, but I can't work out what it is. I need to go right back to the start again, so here are some basic questions that I would be very grateful if you could answer. Thanks.
1] Should the cable be as vertical as possible between the cable stop and the fixing bolt?
2] I assume the cable goes between the plate and the FD body, not between the bolt head and the plate. Am I right?
3] Should the cable enter the fixing bolt in a clockwise direction (from inside to outside) or counter clockwise direction?
4] The fixing bolt plate has a small 'tail' in one corner. Where should this end up - top, bottom, left, right?
5] Should I pull the cable through the fixing bolt with significant strength, or just hand strength?
6] Do I need to wrap the cable around the fixing bolt before tightening or just leave it vertical?
7] How does the adjuster on the grip shifter affect things?
