It did not go out of the factory with Tiagra STI shifters; all Trek 520s of that era used barend shifters. Also Shimano introduced Tiagra in 2011, starting with 4400 at 9 speed. Per Trek catalogs,...

I can understand a chain wearing out in one year, but find it odd that the cassette would be worn out after just 1 chain that was not worn beyond 0.75% (as you imply). You didn't mention which...

Is the wheel properly dished? With the wheel installed with the skewer set firmly against the "bottom" of the dropouts, is the distance from the rim to each chainstay the same? Also, if you reverse...

Others may say it clearer but the first step for installing the FD is to get the outer cage parallel with the large chainring and the proper gap between bottom of the cage and large chainring. You...

It depends. With the new rings installed, does the chain fall between the small middle or middle large? It also might not work if you have indexed front shifting (which moves the chain a very...

There isn't much space in the rear derailleur cage to start with, but it does not need to be because the chain just runs in a straight line (laterally) from the lower pulley to upper pulley . Is...

Please read carefully. Cable pull changed starting with 10 speed MTB RD (REAR derailleur) so the road brifters are no longer compatible with MTB RDs. The road brifters have NEVER shifted a MTB FD...

Yes, as I said in my above post I am, or have in the past, used all three of these FDs in 3x9 setups, and most have MTB cranks with the 50mm chainline. These FDs don't seem to care what chain your...

Using friction shifters really opens up your options. You are correct that in the indexed mode, the right shifter would only work with whatever number of rear cogs it was designed for (be that 7 or...

Sorry about the links not working. I need to make sure they work before posting links in the future. As to your current crankset (FC-M530), it came in 2 configurations, 44-32-22T and 48T-36T-26T....

My first inclination was that your smallest cogs are worn, especially as skipping would get noticeably worse after putting on a new chain. However, you say you replaced the cassette (at the same...

I've heard of it, but can't remember where. It seems to me the vast majority of tours end at some point, whether it be after 1 year or 5 years. I would think you would want to have plans to take...

I find this highly unlikely, I assume you took the bike back to the same store you bought it from for the "FREE new bike tune-up". Or was there a problem you noticed riding the bike? Does the...

Limit screws do not control shifting to the middle chainring. Limit screws keep the chain from overshifting (chain falling off) the large and small chainrings. Your problem is incorrect cable...
