If you read my article Smooth Shifting on rear derailleurs, you probably learned some tricks that will be useful in adjusting the front derailleur as well.
The front derailleur can be tricky because the mechanic must first make several adjustments to align the front derailleur with the chainrings before making any useful adjustments. These alignments are made by eye. New front derailleurs come with a guide sticker on the outer plate to help line the outer plate with the teeth on the largest chainring.
Some front derailleurs are mounted in a fixed position on the frame and cannot be adjusted. If you have a fixed-position front derailleur (like and e-type or direct mount), you can skip the first step assuming the derailleur, frame, and chainrings on the crank were designed to work together.
this is what happens when you have wayyyyy too much time on your hands and only a little footage from 2 years ago!
i would appreciate all and any silly comments...hey maybe one you fellow MTB'ers could create something that we can post!
This video includes most of the Sprague Brook main loop.
It was shot before the "new" downhill was made and also doesn't include the "Bridge" trail or Foote Road.
The new web site allows us to post videos in place of articles. If this is a feature we like, maybe we can get a preview link on the Homepage.
Sorry for the slow pace, we were just trying to keep the riders together for video sake. Enjoy.
You all probably noticed that we have the login only on the front page of the website now. We want to make sure everyone gets a look at the latest news from WNYMBA, and the place for that is the front page.
You can help keep the content on the front page fresh but submitting an article. Anyone can do it! You will see a new menu button on the left. Click it and type or paste in your article. An editor will take a look at it, edit if necessary (like make more paragraph breaks so it's easier to read), add in the "read more..." line. Then it will show up as a feature article.
