Addiction LXXVIII

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

On a Shimano front derailleur which screw do you turn so in the big ring the derailleur moves away from the frame? Right now the chain is all but rubbing.

9 days ago I paid for my replacement frame and fork. I figured I would call today since I hadn't heard anything yet. when I talked to the LBS they expected it to be another three weeks - ven though it is shipping from within the United States.

If that is true it will be a 3 month process from the beginning of this late in May.

Inner screw counter clockwise? I turned it some and nothing seemed to happen.

No, it is. It’s rewarding people for riding their usual routes that may have a segment

Turn the outer screw CCW, but it won't go anywhere without cable tension.

+1.

Also, sometimes the derailleur will have "settled in" to that spot, so a shift down and back up may put the derailleur farther out. If repeated shifting won't move the derailleur farther out, you may need more cable tension.

It could be cool if the segments were hand-picked. The algorithm/criteria currently driving the selections isn't hacking it.

On my Shimano FDs, yes. You can verify that it's the right screw by turning it clockwise and looking for inward movement.

Oh yeah, you showed a pic of one of them newfangled Shimano FDs. If your Shimano FD has JIS Phillips head limit screws, it's not gonna be like the one in the pic.

It’s not difficult if there is a segment on a road you ride frequently.

Now that my commute is a stroll down the hallway, there's no segment I ride that frequently. I did break my olde commute into 1/2 mile segments, I suppose I could do some loops repeating one of those half miles

In the big ring the outer part of the derailleur is too close to the chain? If the cable isn't tight enough it won't matter how much you loosen the screw. The screw is to limit the movement of the derailleur, the shifter is supposed to put it in the right place. If the shifter cable is frayed the first thing you usually notice is the cable seems loose.

Holy Moley! Train caught fire on the trestle over Tempe Town Lake. Looks like they must be wooden ties on that trestle the way it's burning.
