Gears still slipping after adjustment, inconsistent shifting
Thought I'd share this.
After installing a new rear cassette, new crank set, new chain and new cables, while keeping the old derailleurs and shift levers, I had the following problem.
The gears were slipping inconsistently across the rear cassette even after adjustment of the cable tightener, at the gear lever.
If I tightened the cable there would be no slipping at the higher gears (larger cogs) , but slipping at the lower gears (small cogs), and loosening the cable had the opposite effect.
The problem turned out to be with the cable casing, which I hadn't replaced (it looked fine to me).
After replacing the casing, the problem was solved.
Some of the simplest things solve the BIGGEST problems Wink Been there my friend!
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!
