Addiction 2023.1

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

It’s still not crisp on all the gears but it’s shifting better than it was, but the smallest cog it will not shift consistently to.

If I slam through all the gears with the bike in the stand I can get it to go, but if I start on cog 2 and shift to cog 1 it doesn’t want to go. Yesterday maybe 6 out of 10 tries.

I just wiped the chain down and tried shifting to the number 1 cog (smallest) and no dice. 5 tries and it wont go.

At this point i’m just going to take it to the shop. The front derailer is out of trim as well.
Adjust the derailleur, as mentioned above.

The fact we have college+ educated people here continually fussing about their expensive bike shifter systems is an indictment of the whole system.

Yes, its awesome. Have had none of the front shifting drama people mention and the whole system was very easy to get set up sans my olive mishap.

Isolate the cause.

In my case it's creaking at the cleat/pedal interface and I rub a candle or crayon on that area, solves the problem!!
