Fd not shift corect

One mountain bike i working before The RD is shifts fine in all the gears is 7 speeds cassette. The crank is triple. The FD is shift from the small chain ring to to the middle chainring but is not shift in the big chain ring. I tried to adjust but i see the chain try go in the big chain ring but finally is not go stay in the middle chain ring. I sale the bike as is the person i sale the bike is was happy with that bike even the problem not shift the FD. I put new shifters new cables but i cant fix that problem. The bike when i buy have all the original parts. Now one man tell to the man i sale the bike is not shift because the rear cassette is 13-32 and is should have 11-28. That man make me laugh looks is not know about bikes. How is cassette size can affect FD shifting?

We are not there to see the problem, for which there can be many causes, but you should not be working on other people's bikes, let alone selling bikes. Selling a bike "as is" does not protect you against someone being angry with you because it does not work right, and your lack of knowledge could endanger someone's health or life.

The fact that in well over a year you have not progressed at all in your ability to communicate in English is equaled by your inability to learn much about bikes. You pretty much ask the same questions and face the same problems over and over. You don't know about bikes - the person is correct. There is a bike co-op in Atlanta, but you so far seem to have refused to go to them, or if you have it has not seemed to have helped at all.

Sì, capisco la difficoltà di imparare una nuova lingua. I was hardly fluent in Italian during my 3 week trip to Italy, but I got by with only about 6 months of learning a few hours per week. Google does a great job of translation, and using it would both get the OP better answers and help him learn better what his errors are. He has yet to tell us his native language.
There's no such thing as a routine repair.

Don't tell me what "should" be - either it is, it isn't, or do something about it.

If you think I'm being blunt take it as a compliment - if I thought you were too weak to handle the truth or a strong opinion I would not bother.

Please respect others by taking the time to post clearly so we can answer quickly. All lowercase and multiple typos makes for a hard read. Thanks!
