front DR too high about main chain-ring?
I bought a Schwinn Super Sport flat-bar road bike from Performance Bike back in 2007. Works fine. Have 1000 mi on it. Had some recent shifting issues (probably due to chain stretch). Recently, couldn't shift from medium chain-ring to smallest chain-ring.
I just put in a new SRAM X-5 front shifter, fiddled with H/L adjustment on front DR (SR Suntour). Everything seems to be OK.
I've been reading online articles (like Parktools.com), & they are saying the front DR lower-edge-of-outer-cage should sit 2mm about the teeth in the largest chain ring. Mine is a good 3/8" above it!!
Is there something wrong? I have a lifetime free adjustment with Performance, so I could get them to do it. I'm tempted just to do it myself.
TIA for any help/advice.
