Derailleur jockeys touch cassette on 3 largest rings
 
Hi, I've had my derailleur, shifter etc setup. And upon trying it, on the 3 lowest gears, the derailleur jockey touches the sprocket, how do I fix this?

Tighten the "b" screw to move the jockey wheels further from the cassette.

Turn the bicycle right side up!

Don't assess and adjust your DR's while the bike is not in the orientation and position you normally ride in. Gravity might be making you think there is a problem when there is none.

^This^ Don't take photos w/ the bike upside down. This should be a very simple 'b' screw adjustment as posted previously.

Is the bracket axle unit / b-link attached to the derailleur hanger properly?

Yours looks like it's attached in a vertical position, it's supposed to be attached in more horizontal position.
