M770 shifter fitting - am I a complete idiot?!?
Please feel free to pepper this thread with abuse if I'm a complete dolt - but I've just replaced the shifters on my MTB with XT M770 shifters. Very nice, very smooth - but, the wrong way round for the cassette!??!
What I mean is that on every other MTB I've ridden, the thumb changes up the cassette to make riding easier, and the finger trigger back down for faster gearing, but not now!
Is it my connection? Is it meant to be this way? I replaced the derailleur too (M770 as well) - could it be something to do with that?!? Can't think what I could have messed up with the connection, (the only thing being the cable running over the top of the securing screw, not below) but thought I'd better mention it.
it's not a 'huge' problem, just means re-learning what how I've ridden in the past - but I thought I'd ask the experts on here what the operation of the shifters should be, just so I know if I've done something stupid.
Thanks in advance, and have a great 2010 everyone!
