Shift quality Trek 8.5 DS
Just bought a new Trek 8.5 DS hybrid with SLX rear derailleur and Deore shifters. Been riding a 1995 Trek 7900 with Deore XT derailleur and grip shifters.
Took the 8.5 out on its first ride today and trying to get used to the shifters. Grip shifting is easy---snap up or down, a gear at a time. With my new bike, kind of depends if you fully depress or lightly depress either shifter. Also, seems like it wants to shift two gears at a time in the smaller gears. Finding myself having to shift twice to get the gear I want.
What gives? Not adjusted right? Maybe it's just that I need to get used to shifting better?
