Did this video help you?

klepetar: it's more a pain in the butt when you install it on a  DH bike and there is no large chainring but a bashguard.. so you have to put the front on the smallest chainring and the rear on the smallest cog..and just make sure it just 1/8 inch clears the lowest part of the cage.. took me 2 hours to figure that out on a santa cruz bullit.. 

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?

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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)

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

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

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

krusty36m: Dude sounds like Ed Grimly
