Ok! Its making more sense to me now!

You have to tell me this though, when you shift to both extremes on the rear deraileur shifter, which end of the gear range does it not shift to?

Make sure you are pedaling forwards while shifting and see whether it has trouble shifting all the way to the BIGGEST cog, or all the way to the SMALLEST cog.

Post the answer here and ill tell you the next step accordingly.

I am more into road cycling. Slim lightweight cro-mo or aluminium frame, drop handlebars, no extras like side stand, carrier or bell. Quite like the one in the image below:

You can ride these bikes for hours as long as the road is good.

If you are on a grip shifter, use the various multiple other positions to position the deraileur in such a way that it doesnt touch.

Hey cowiee,

So you say that it shifts fine on all the rear gears now and the only problem is the chain hitting the front deraileur as you shift towards the smaller cogs...right?

Its pretty simple to fix (assuming you have a barrel adjuster)-

On the left hand side shifter (which should control your front deraileur), find the barrel adjuster. (its the part closest to where the cable attaches)

Now turn that anti-clockwise, and you should see the front derailleur cage move closer to the largest gear up front. Play with the position of the cage until there is no more interference with the chain when shifting gears through the range on the rear derailleur.

Let me know if this works.

Exclamation Bmxtb 2006

BMXTB on Sunday the 4th of June 2006

The write up in the saturday papers nailed my plans for the sunday, a puneite called Sammi Makki, absolute bicycle maniac was organising the BMXTB 2006 at the Centre for Police research, Pashan. I had to be there!!!



We reached the venue a little late but doubt we missed too much......

We walked over to where all the commotion was and was amazed at the cycles i saw!!! Here i was expecting the run-of-the-mill Hero Swing or Hercules Shox but the cycles there were advanced, way advanced!!!

Check the pics!!!

Cannondale Chase [Handmade in the US]


FOES Racing VTT


KONA Stab dee-lux


Santacruz V10 [I think!]


The organisers!!


Overall it was refreshing to see such dedication to a bicycle, and with the dedication came control!!!!

Again most of the action was caught on video!!!

Met a whole load of Auto enthusiasts there, OVERDRIVE was there covering the event too.[Note the K&N tee that the organiser is sporting!!!!]

Pictures by Stararmour and me and a few taken from the official website: www.ride2026.com
