I think jimc101 and DocsDad are both right;you prolly need the cable tweaked,and you really shouldn't go below 3rd in the middle ring.

At my clinic,I explain to people that the front rings are basically low,medium,and high gear range,and that they should be matched to the gears in the back.

1 1-4
2 3-6
3 5-9
