Did this video help you?

MegaRetroRocket: @scorroon2010 you need to break your chain if it is a loop, then run one end through the rear derailleur assembly and the front derailleur before closing it up again.

spadoutDOTcom: No problem. Thanks for the feedback.

htedum: Thanks so much! I was in a mess, there was a sound from my FD touching the chain, so I tried adjusting limiting screws and screwed up the whole thing. Then I watched your video, loosened everything and set up the derailler from scratch. It's working better than it was when it was new, and I now know a little bit more about my bike. :) Cheers!

DKF22: what a useless video

Erwin Figueroa: Hi! When you mentioned about the 2mm gap between the derailleur and the big ring, when is this measure taken? With the derailleur on the smallest ring or when manually moving the derailleur over the big ring?

Tayler Eby: thanks, this is a good video. i had problems with the other videos because some idiot is always in front of what hes doing. definitely the best video to follow if your installing a front derailleur.

Of Chemistry, Films, and More: @55movie55 i think your cable is too loose.

GuyGeneration001: Thanks a lot man!!

Tom Bradley: "Yer gonna want to install yer chain," and POOF! It's installed? I want my two minutes back.

fish3y1: thanks for the easy to understand video. it helped me a lot.

Giulifi: ummm when i install the shifter cable, has it got to ve very tense, or loose???because then i can't shift the gears to the largest chainring :S please help

spadoutDOTcom: The shifter cable must be tight, not extremely but no slack and make sure when your attaching it that the shifter is in the correct gear.

spadoutDOTcom: @emilianus12 Are your chain rings new or old, because they might be bent which would cause a problem.

55movie55: @spadoutDOTcom i have it like that but my FD wont even shift (I start at the lowest of gears and it wont shift up)

madaboutrc: you will need a chain rivet tool to open out your chain, then put it through, then use the tool to re connect the chain. All you need is a chain rivet tool, really cheap £3 (uk)

jason miller: do you mean only two of the front cogs? I have the same problem

worked4us: What gear should the front shifter be in at time of cable assembly?

spadoutDOTcom: @htedum NP and well done!

markanite: @puck4877 NP and thanks for the comment!

ABB: how do you attach the shifting cable ? what rear gear should y ou set to ?

1stmissingsnowman: apparently this is for "derailler" or "drailler" - LOL

spadoutDOTcom: NP and thanks for the feedback.

chavamo: Thank God you posted this video, I installed thumb shifter on my bike but I was having problems with the front derailleur. After I followed most of the steps as I could it finally started to shift right.

Tayler Eby: some things you left out or could have expanded on were. 1) how much tension on the cable. 2) what is the largest gear other then that it is great.

krusty36m: Dude sounds like Ed Grimly

sawink: Sprocket! Now is when we dance mein SPROCKETS!!!!!!

filipp lyashenko: my derailleur only lets me go on to two speeds, i dont know whats wrong

Reptile MK: thanks a lot, I just adjusted mine :)

jjunius96: i broke my front derailur guide, how can i replace it?

ℜƺIV: How do you attach it to an aero frame? my seat-tube has a brazed/welded on tab that has a vertical slot???

spadoutDOTcom: Great! Let us know if you have any follow up questions.

MrDVCHITTer: you have to adjust the barrel adjuster on the front derailleur shifter cable clock wise to move the derailleur bracket in towards the frame and counter clockwise to move it out away from the frame . for 3 crank set you set it to the middle one and shift the rear sprockets to their limits inward and outward checking the chain gap to derailleur bracket respectively and then adjust the barrel to get the right gap on both sides.

HeinzundBerta: Nice video - but how shall I bring the chain into the derailleur??

Juan Pedro: I saw a comment on another one of this guy's video that went something like "Walt Jr from Breaking Bad is making bike maintenance videos?" I laughed my ass off at that.

Xinthose: "Yer gonna want to install yer chain,"

Cesur Fahrradmanufaktur Münster: Cesur - Shift Guide - Gerade Kettenlinie

daveeeed: which gear should it be in when you attach and tension the cable? i take it the small chainring ie the front mech shifter position should not be for the outer ring cheers

puck4877: thank you for the Awesome tutorial! I was pulling my hair out trying to get my derailleur adjusted properly.

markus4269: Or you can open the derailleur cage screw and remove the derailleur with a joint chain

Stephen Corroon: How'd u get the chain into the derailleur??? Magic r wot

RaySulz: not the best video, camera angle could be changed more for better view.

bigmike1ak: At the end part, is the chain supposed to be close to the inner or outer plate of the deraileur? How close?

bobbywotsit: I have just bought a sora groupset and realised how little I know about bike parts! The sora front derailleur has nothing to attach it to the seat post is this another item I have to purchase separately?

spadoutDOTcom: NP!

GhostTech100: man what a great video thanks man.Its crazy how many techs charge you arm and leg for a simple turn and tell you that your bike will be ready in a week lol.

33696933: Thanks. looks like the white to black version of '00 m80. got the blue to black =D

emilianus12: the chain is still touching the sides of the derailleur :(( on the second sprocket:((
