No Matter what I do I can't get this rear derailleur adjusted properly. I had it going good when I first built the bike, now I have put a total of about 50 miles and I cant for the life of me get it to stay where it belongs. Everything is brand new (cables, housings, shifters, etc) 2007 veloce. I tried going back to 0 (removing the cable and starting from scratch), and when upshifting to larger cogs it will skip a gear when it gets to the larger gears, when downshifting sometimes it requires 2 clicks and then it will skip a gear. It always ships the 2nd smallest gear when downshifting, and I can only catch that gear upshifting if I'm very delicate. it almost feels like its indexing 1 less time than it should. I turned the barrel adjuster, I set the screws as per the instructions. Maybe I should set it back to the way it was out of the box (how would I even do that?) and start there. I just don't know.
Not only that but sometimes in 3rd through 6th gear the chain clanks on to the rear cogs like its not timed properly and stretched. The chain is brand new and has 50 miles as well.
Any ideas? This is driving me nuts and with this 3 day weekend I wanted to get 3 good days of riding in. I did a quick 15 miler today, I would prefer to get some more distance in and also have it work properly for the Duathlon I have in 2 weeks.
