    2008 Novara Randonee - love it. Would have more bikes if I had time to ride them all. Previous bikes: 1968 Motobecane Mirage, 1972 Moto Grand Jubilee (my fav), Jackson Rake 16, 1983 C'dale ST500.

    The stop screw was not mentioned because "In the last ride in Fall 2013, everything was fine..no derailleur adjustments made since Fall 2013."
    There's no such thing as a routine repair.

    Don't tell me what "should" be - either it is, it isn't, or do something about it.

    If you think I'm being blunt take it as a compliment - if I thought you were too weak to handle the truth or a strong opinion I would not bother.

    Please take the time to post clearly so we can answer quickly. All lowercase and multiple typos makes for a hard read. Thanks!

    The stop screw was not mentioned because "In the last ride in Fall 2013, everything was fine..no derailleur adjustments made since Fall 2013." The only possibility would be a prank adjustment, but it seems unlikely the OP would not have checked the inner limit screw. Again, the isolation techniques mentioned would quickly show that the derailleur is not moving inward even without the cable to prevent it doing so, and then of course one would check the limit screw if it had not been done before.

    It's also possible that the housing isn't fully seated in a cable stop. Sometimes they can dislodge if the cable gets stuck on something like a rack, and the bike is moved before the cable is freed.

    Problem Solved

    Now that this Eternal Winter is finally coming to an end, I took my bike into the LBS to get this issue sorted out.

    The LBS folks were thoroughly flummoxed by this issue and called Shimano to initiate the warranty exchange. Shiamano pointed out that this shifter has a tiny switch on the bottom that is used to either configure it for a double or triple chainring. Somehow, it had been flipped over to the 2-ring mode. Switching it back to 3-ring mode reportedly solved this issue.

    I feel embarrassed that I did not discover this issue myself.

    Easy fix, at least.

    I've had that happen too.
    Another weird thing is almost all my guitars always go out of tune sharp! I've never really figured that out, but almost all my guitars, if I haven't played them for awhile are always at least a half step sharp. I know the strings aren't shrinking and the temp in my house doesn't change much, so I have no idea why.

    Guitar turning sharp may be due to a humidity increase (assuming it is an acoustic model) - the wooden guitar itself will soak up moisture and get slightly bigger.

    yes, thanks for photo. Will stick this in a nook or cranny of my mind for some future trigger shifter weirdness.
    Had no idea systems had this option, I guess cuz of more and more models with doubles, so it makes stocking easier as one model shifter system can do both. I wonder if this will be a problem long term with the innards getting crotchety over time and causing issues?
