Help adjusting front derailleur - Trek 1.5
I have a slight problem.
When I drop to the small chainring on the front three sprockets, I have had the chain go completely off and drop into the frame three times this week. I also notice I need to have the trim clicked to the slight trim position all the time or I hear chatter. This makes me thing I need to adjust the deraileiur to the outside just slightly.
I have had the bike since June and have put over 500 miles on it, so it doesn't surprise me it needs an adjustment.
Take it to the shop? Or adjust it myself? If anyone can tell me what screw to turn, I'll give it a shot. I'm a pretty decent mechanic when it comes to motorcycles, so I'm not afraid of wrenches.
