Video: Adjust Derailleur at Rear
on Front Unit
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. Today I'm going to show you how to adjust the front derailleur on a mountain bike or touring bike. The reason we need to adjust the derailleur is that after prolonged periods of riding, it's possible for the derailleur to move out of position or to be knocked loose if riding off road. If this happens, the gears will not change properly and the chain rubs against the derailleur.
- 3In order to adjust the derailleur, we can look down the chain and see which side is too close to the chain.If the chain is rubbing against the low end, we can turn the screw to move the low end of the derailleur out. If we turn it counter clockwise, then it moves the derailleur in towards the chain. It is the same for the high screw, if you turn it clockwise it moves it out and if you turn it counter clockwise it moves it in.
- 5That is how to adjust the front derailleur on a mountain bike or touring bike.If you have any questions, suggestions or comments leave them in the comment box below. Thank you for choosing VisiHow.Advertisement
