My duraace triple front derailleur is working ok but...
I feel the tension on the cable is too great, could I have something set wrong? The reason I feel this is that the tension on the STI lever to change to the large chainring is quite hard. Also when I change down the derailleur really flies inwards. If I have the chain any lower than the middle of the rear cassette when I change down at the front, the chain zips straight onto the small chain ring at the front, missing the middle chainring.
I'd been thinking this was manageable until during a cleanup noticed that the cable was beginning to fray at the clamp on the front derailleur. It's as if the spring on the front derailleur is too powerful.
Grateful for any thoughts.
