Issue is the FD sometimes takes some time to drop from big ring to little ring. It invariably is well into a ride, it NEVER happens in the first hour on the road. But an hour or two into a ride, it will sometimes take a few seconds or even several seconds to finally drop onto the small ring. I checked the cable and pivot points, all are nice and smooth/lubed. In the stand, it shifts up/down crisply. Even if I put it in the big ring at night, next morning it will drop onto the small ring without delay.

Any ideas???
Can you see if the derailleur end of the cable goes slack next time? If not, cable; if so, mech.
