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..
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.
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
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!
chaurasia hariprasad: 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
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.
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
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?
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
33696933 A: Thanks. looks like the white to black version of '00 m80. got the blue to
emilianus12: the chain is still touching the sides of the derailleur :(( on the second
