For example, if I set my gear to 2x8, sometimes it will change all the way to 2x8 but sometimes only to 2x7 and so on. It is especially the eigth gear that is occasionally refusing to "click in". Tried to tense/release the gearwires but actually with little success.
Possible causes of not reaching the smallest cog: 1) rear gear shift cable too tight; 2) rear derailleur high gear limit screw advanced too far; 3) rear derailleur bent slightly inward.
