OK, I'm not crazy and I do know how adjust a derailleur.
I adjusted the H and L stops, cable tension, multiple test rides and tweaks.
Then I did some googling and confirmed what Mondoman had already told me- thanks, by the way
Then I took my new Comp 3.0 back to the LBS.
After a bit of "Well, this is really the only SRAM blah blah..."
I explained that it just seemed the pull ratio was wrong- there's a 2:1 and a 1:1 and I think I need 2:1 and this is 1:1. LBS guy did a bit more looking at his screen and typing and determined the 3.0 is indeed 1:1 and works only with SRAM cassettes.
In the end he was fairly cool. He ordered the right part which will arrive Thursday.
So I guess it's all OK. I paid a bit more bicycle tax than I meant to, but it's going to support a local business so I guess I'll survive.
