Their site also has a wealth of other bike maintenance and adjustment information and it would be worth your time to have a look. Good luck.
Thanks a bunch for the links. Iíve read them a few times to make sure I was on the same page and it really sounds like what I was doing. Though reading the front derailleur guide made me think that the tension was a bit much so I think Steve is on to something there. I will report back tomorrow after I play with it some.
