Adjusting FD to not rub in middle cog on a 3/8 specifically 2/7 gear.....
Forgive my ignorance if the title doesn't make sense, I'll reiterate....
Triple w/ 8 speed cassette in back. Altus front/Alivio rear. (Cannondale Quick4)
As mentioned before I have 2 identical bikes. Bike 1 rubs in middle crank cog & 2nd smallest rear cog. (2/7) All the rest are good down to 2/1 which maybe rubs a tad, but I'd change cogs before going there anyway as I try to stay out of 1 or 8 in any cog.
FD barrel adjuster is as loose as it'll go. (counter-clockwise) If I tighten it (clockwise) I can get it to rub from 2/8 down to 2/5, if I tighten all the way. So I think I need to actually pull the FD cable a little tighter, no??
All else appears ok. FD height/alignment appears good (like bike 2) and I think that's set by Cannondale anyway so I really wouldn't want to tweak that unless somebody thinks it really needs it.
Any suggestions much appreciated!!! (Will post pics if anybody wants)
