Hi all, Got on the bike for the first time in ages on Sunday, but going up the hill form my house, I
tried to shift to the small chain ring, but the derailleur wouldn't go. I tried putting some slack
in on the shifter, but there was plenty.

I stopped and used a screwdriver to reset the stopper screw on the derailleur, but it was fine. I
even tried both!!

The derailleur just won't go far enough. I just cannot see what is wrong. The derailleur has not
moved, nor has it been dinged in storage.

Any ideas anyone?

TIA Trevor

Pivots on the der have seized and need loosening / oiling. Right crank is coming loose. You need to
reset the cable at the der.

ROFLMAO... Any ideas? HA HA HA!

Bill The mind serves properly as a window glass rather than as a reflector, that is, the mind should
give an immediate view instead of an interpretation of the world.
