(New) Front derailleur hits large chainring OR chain on small chainring
I finally picked up a front derailleur for my '09 Fuji Thrill LT and when attempting to install it, I can either get the small chainring to clear, or the large by moving it up or down the seat tube. There are no tilt adjustments, although this appears like it may be what I need to get it to clear on both sides. Either the bottom/tip of the derailleur, where the chain sits on the smallest gear, hits on the chain or the outer part of the derailleur hits the 44T chainring when I attempt to move up to the large chainring.
I am using a SRAM X9 front derailleur and a SRAM S1000 22-32-44 crankset. There are no visible signs of the (new) front derailleur being bent where it goes to the mount. This configuration was used on the LT 2.0 model for the same model year, except they used an X7 derailleur. Tips?
I tried pictures but apparently I need to use my SLR instead - they were all blurry due to the shiny silver frame.
