This might be better in the Bicycle mechanics section, but it's recumbent specific, so I thought I would try here first.
I have a TW-Bents Elegance model, (specifications here)
With the factory setup, after taking it to my LBS when I first got it for set up and installing some things, the LBS mechanic said they can't get all the gears in the range to work. I'm guessing there is something wrong with the way he adjusted the shifter or the derailer, but I don't want to make it worse.Shifter : Sram grip shifter.
Stem : alloy adjustable stem.
F/derailleur : Shimano 105
R/derailleur : Shimano XT
Crank : 52/42/30 w/chain cover, alloy
Freewheel : Sram 970 11-34 9 speed
Chain : KMC Z9000
So I'm going to go read the Park Tools website, and Sheldon Brown's site, but if anyone has any suggestions from the bent riders specifically, I'd love to hear 'em.
Currently, there are two issues: On the smallest front sprocket, the rear derailer goes into the lowest (1st) gear one click early (when it should be in the second cog), and if I shift into 1st, the chain actually comes off and into the wheel. Secondly, the gear won't go into the highest (9th) cog on the rear. This makes me think the whole thing is miscalibrated by one gear somehow, but I haven't figured out how to fix it.
