It just doesn't work well, of course it's the wrong clamp size as I took it off another bike. I put in metal shims so it'd clamp down, I've had no end of trouble adjusting the damn thing. I can't get smooth shifting no matter what I do. My friend who I've never seen not be able to adjust a front derailler, can't even get it working nicely.
I think I'll go get an LX or XT FD and forget this.
