Rear derailleur adjustment problem with Paul's Thumbies
Has anyone had a problem with being unable to properly adjust the rear derailleur and cable with Paul's Thumbies? I have a new bike, with dura ace bar end shifters (mounted with the thumbies), an XTR rear derailleur and the XT 11-34 cassette (9-speed).
With the bike on the rack, I cannot adjust the cable tension to cleanly shift through all of the gears, even with the bike on the rack. Its as if the shifter is not compatible with the derailleur (I have the same setup on another bike, but without the thumbies, and I can properly adjust the cable tension on that bike). I was going to take off the thumbies, and try it with the shifters attached to the bar ends, but before I do that I was looking for any other suggestions.
