Sram X-9 Barrel Adjuster
Hey guys,

I have Sram gear components on my bike -

X-9 Trigger Shifters leading to X-9 front derailleur & X-0 rear derailleur.

The barrel adjusters for this system as you're probably aware are at the shifters rather than at the actual derailleurs as in some other models.

I'm planning on trying my hand at front & rear derailleur adjustment in the near future. However, the left side barrel adjuster (operates front derailleur) doesn't seem to be functioning.

I took the dust covers off both shifters and when you turn the right hand barrel adjuster you can see the cable tightening & loosening but the cable in the left hand shifter doesn't move at all when try it's adjuster.

Anyone know what the problem might be?

Coincidentally, I've been having problems with my left hand shifter, sometimes when I've been riding with the largest chainring & I try to shift down to any of the smaller ones it gets stuck. So I usually end up havin to click the shifter back up into the highest setting & back down several times until it actually shifts.

I've got a feeling the shifting problem may be linked to the non-functioning barrel adjuster somehow.

Any help will be met with severe gratitude.

Cheers

Si

Ok buddy, I'll have a good old' rummage round the forum then. Hopefully I'll find a solution because I really need to adjust my gears!
