Rear derailleur arm is too high up
I recently attempted to do some maintenance on my bicycle which resulted in an unexpected problem. I tried to remove the chain for cleaning by pulling on the rear
derailleur arm to reduce the tension on the chain and make it easier to remove. I eventually had to use a chain tool to remove the pin to get the chain off of the bike. After cleaning the chain and putting it back on the gears, I notice there was a lot of slack in the chain, and that the rear derailleur arm was very high up. It has to swing down (counter clockwise) about 150 degrees or so.
I am not sure how to adjust the position of the derailleur arm so that I can get the correct chain tension again. Does any one have any useful links or suggestions for me?
Thanks a lot
