Oooookie doookie... having some XT issues here.
Anyone that can help is MUCHO appriciated.
So I have an XT Mid-cage rear derailleur on my Demo 9. I have it mated with an LX shifter, full length housing, and an Avid Rollamajig (correctly setup ).
Anyway, I can get it to upshift nice and crispy and smooth, but towards the bottom of the downshifts (going from like 2-5 through 2-9) it just clunks/slams into gear, and then towards 2-9 hesitates big-time to go into gear. I figured this would mean too much cable tension, so I took out a little tension, and the same thing happens.. except it won't upshift smooth anymore.
So.. what adjustment(s) should I make so it'll shift down as smooth as up? My cable is brand new, as is the housing. It's been Tri-Flowed, and is clean with no crapola all over it. So the cable is not snagging (it slides smoothly in the housing).
Anyway, any help is appriciated... as I'm getting a little frustrated with this thing. I'm usually ok at adjustments.. but this one's got me stumped. (and no the derailleur hanger isn't bent! it's too beefy).
