How To Fix Cycling Shifting Problems On Road Bike | What Does This Do?


okay i’m in stoney creek Branford Connecticut March 21st it’s a Tuesday afternoon about 57 56 degrees maybe load the cooler down here by the water and I’m heading home this is a first ride of the year kind of first official ride I’d been up for a couple times I’m just kind of doing some short ride with a friend and most of my rides the last two or three months have been on the trailer so yeah great to get outdoors again so not so long ago I was checking out a couple videos on YouTube some people I know is how people I don’t know well not people I know look sorta dislike people like seeing their channels or their videos before so this one guy won’t mention of my name he’s up riding and he he’s pretty knowledgeable about road bikes in spending time on the on the bike and enjoying it he he is someone who’s an expert at fixing flat tire I think we did a number of times on the obvious video and I was absolutely amazed to hear him talk about how his bike was misbehaving a little bit in that the shifting wasn’t as crisp as it used to be and that occasionally he can hear a change struggling to jump the cogs in the back and it amazed me to think that this guy who knows quite a bit of our bikes had no idea that all he had to do was reach behind near the derailleur and make a slight turn on the barrel adjuster on the cable and tighten up the cable for the derailleur to solve that issue he actually took it to a bike shop and while he waited they actually made the adjustment for him didn’t charge him anything which and a respectable bike shop wouldn’t do consider this a minor and that fool you know something to taking a two seconds to do but I was just so surprised that he didn’t know that basic thing about this bike anyway kind of surprised me a little bit I didn’t expect I’d be writing all the way out to stoney creek today especially considering i first ran down to the town beach and then over to say can head but why not you know the state is bothering me right now is my nose still kind of chilly air for anyone who’s ever spent any time a fight on the cool day doing any sort of exercise or even moderately move it along I think long before you start sniffling a bit that’s where I am now sniffling a bit Oh in Oh you Oh you you
