"Thanks for the reply Jilden. That has given me a few things to try.  It is highly possible the cage has been distorted by a drive side fall caused by an unfortunately timed gust of wind while i was taking my bike out of the car."

probably a stupid question - front derailleur limit screws

Hopefully just a quick and simple question:My front derailleur (ultegra 6800) is shifting all good but i'm getting a slight (but very annoying) chain rub on the outside of the front derailleur when im in my 11x52. So i figure i need a slight adjustment of H screw but when i do this the derailleur does not move at all (clockwise or anti).

"This is true. The laws are there and more than capable of a successful prosecution in this matter. The biggest factor however is if the person who obtained the registration would be willing provide a statement. "

Im a 54 frame with the Orbea and checked all the geometry charts and it…See More
