Help - need to adjust my Sturmey Archer XRF8
I have > 1400mi on my IGH. Had it adjusted once last year, now it's acting up again. I want to learn how to do this myself.
Gears 1-5 are fine.
Gear 6 is practically nonexistent. Usually fails to engage, when it does engage, it slips out very easily.
Gear 7 engages OK but slips a lot
Gear 8 is fine.
This an XRF8 IGH that came factory installed on my Downtube Mini. Downtube's instructions are to line up the little yellow arrow on the pulley between the two yellow notches when the bike is in 4th gear.
Well, I checked that and it's already lined up perfectly.
Any ideas on what to try now? Thanks!
