When pedaling only! Actually, right after I stop pedaling there may be 1 click or so but that could just be my imagination.

How could I forget to mention that?!

It's not shoelaces. I've had...

Strange dull clicking sound

I can hear a dull clicking sound when I ride. Lower pitched than, say, a piece of rock being kicked up by the front wheel and hitting the (aluminum) frame. Each click is almost like a creaking but of...

OK, I think I've solved this. I believe the caliper was misaligned. I just gave it a little tug in the opposite direction, it moved, and now the rim is equally distant from both pads. There is no...

Well, the flat wasn't on this tire but I will check anyway. Do I check this by sight and feel or is there a special procedure?

I believe that it is centered. I have ridden many miles without any problems with this setup. That's the strange thing here, nothing has changed! I didn't touch the front wheel after the flat, I just...

jimc101, what do you mean by "centered"? That's what I am trying to achieve by fiddling with it as there seems to be 1mm or so of free play once the wheel is in the fork dropouts.

Front brake drag

OK, so this may be somewhat stupid, but I'm a bit puzzled. I'm a beginner mechanic and I've done some work but nothing with wheels.

My wheels were fine, brake pads are fairly new (Kool-Stop...

I removed the H screw so that it wouldn't block the upshift. This prevents mixing up cable tension issues with limit screw issues, or so I believe.

Poor upshifts from 2nd-3rd and 3rd-4th

I recently replaced the cassette, chain, cables and housings on my rear derailleur. After adjustments, all the shifting is smooth except upshifts from 2nd-3rd and 3rd-4th (counting the smallest cog...

All right, I think I have this thing figured out.

First I studied that Shimano PDF and came up with how the shifting is supposed to work on a double. To upshift, a single stroke is required to...

There wasn't too much tension. The cable was quite loose, not floppy, but not tense either.

I think there is a fundamental problem here. How can I possibly adjust the front derailleur if I don't...

Yes, Sora does trim with a double. Look at the PDF document, there are details there. My problem is most likely cable tension, I will look at it at home. But I am also confused on the proper click...

That's what I did with the pliers except what do you consider adequate?

I'm a bit confused about some of the tools you mention. Is a 3rd hand tool the same things as a 4th hand tool or a cable...

The tension may well be too high. There is a very loud clunk when downshifting. I'll try playing around with this when I get back home. I just used a pair of pliers to pull the wire. Any tips on how...

Sora hard to downshift

Hi all,

I have just replaced the inner wire and housing for my front derailleur. When I tried it out today, I found that it was extremely difficult to downshift from the big to the small chain...
