was glad to have my LBS change the front derailleur cable, but not glad I didn't check it, before leaving the shop

looking at it last night, I think I remember putting the rear derailleur in the middle of the cassette, but the chain rubs the cage when it's on the middle & large chain rings up front. so I think I have to adjust the front derailleur cable index setting. I don't think my bike has a front derailleur barrel adjuster so I'll have to adjust the cable length manually at the pinch bolt ... grrr

the whole point of hiring a pro & being lazy, is not having to do this ... oh well

EDIT, yes I do have shift barrel adjusters. I think that's what these are on my Bottecchia 2009 Road Racing Bike Shimano 105, Simano Dura-ace Shift/Brake levers
