Adjusting Derailluer

There are two adjustment screws on the front derailleur: one labelled "High" and the other labelled "Low". How do I adjust the screws so the cage does not rub against the chain?

i highly suggest that you visit the parktool site or maybe even sheldonbrown.com.

millimeter adjustments make HUGE changes. maybe even try to take your bike to a real shop and ask if you can watch.

To my understanding, those screws define the extents or boundaries that the derailluer travels each of two ways. Something that has more to it than just turning the screws when making this adjustment. I read about it once and it got complicated.
