    Decathlon Shimano front derailleur

    Is this a genuine Shimano Tiagra 4700 part, and if so why is it almost half the price of anywhere else? https://www.decathlon.co.uk/p/front-derailleur-brazed-on-mount-2x10-speed-shimano-tiagra-fd-4700-f/_/R-p-200902

    The end of the front derailleur?

    A new company in Belgium has come up with a very clever replacement hub gear that does away with the front derailleur. It's controlled by Bluetooth and can even shift under full load: View: https://youtu.be/UFMhUYoqFyc Could this be a game changer?

    Altus M370 Front Derailleur replacement

    I have recently replaced most of my drivetrain (cassette, chain, chainset and bottom bracket), going for Alivio as an upgrade to the Altus on the bike (3 x 9 speed). Shifting is much improved but the front derailleur is past its sell by date - rusted limit screw heads and I've already had to...

    Shimano Acera front derailleur lever

    The shifter (forgive ignorance) transfers the chain smoothly and accurately but the "raise" lever needs so much thumb and wrist movement that I fear an attack of arthritis. Can someone point me to instructions for adjusting it please? Down tube levers were so simple - sigh. TIA Ken

    SRAM Apex front derailleur problem

    I'm trying out a bike fitted with a SRAM Apex drivetrain (50/34T compact crankset, chain, shifters, derailleurs, 10-speed 11-32T cassette) using the "double tap" shift system, and am posting to ask for advice. The rear derailleur shifts sweetly and precisely, but I'm having a problem with the...

    Front derailleur

    Morning all. After breaking my rear mech hanger and replacing it, I’ve indexed the rear derailleur and that’s working fine. But I’m finding I can’t shift from the small ring to the big ring now. I’ve adjusted all limiting screws no the front derailleur and barrel adjuster and cable tension. If...

    Front derailleur mounting

    I'm replacing my whole drivetrain with tiagra 4700. My current FD is an FD-2203 tiagra triple with a clamp on mount. However the clamp and the FD are separate. I got a FD as part of a set with a crankset and RD. The clamp is too small though. (I knew this when buying) I hoped that I would be...

    Sram Rival Front Derailleur Keeps Failing - why?

    Hi I have a Planet X Rt-58D. Carbon frame with a Sram Rival groupset. It's 3 years old now with probably 15,000 miles. Chain and cassette are new (I think I am on my second or third cassette) - I've not changed the chain rings. I clean the drivetrain regularly with the Mickle method. The...

    Front Derailleur jumping from largest to smallest cog on triple chainset

    Hi All, I am riding a Ridgeback Voyage which has a triple chainset at the front. As part of a recent service at an LBS, they changed the cable which had become frayed. Unfortunately, as a result of this, they have introduced a fault whereby changing down from the largest ring, it jumps...

    Front Derailleur Issues

    I have a Shimano 105 groupset and no matter how I adjust the front derailleur the chain still catches on the guard when in the smallest gear and on both big and small ring. If I manage to adjust it to stop the catching I lose the ability to choose the highest gear. It's almost as if there is...

    Front derailleur on a Bromptopn

    I was having a chat the other day with one of the guys on my train that has a Birdy Folder. I was moaning about climbing the hill out the station and saying I might fit a smaller chainring (which I've done), and he said can't you fit a front derailleur and two chainrings? I did a quick search...

    Front Derailleur Issues

    Hello I've been upgrading Shimano Revoshift to Tourney Thumbshift (SL-TX50) on my son's bike (Python Rock). Rear derailleur was really easy and no problem (and much improved shifting!) but front one is causing me a headache … The main issue I have is that the shifter "maxes out" half way round...

    I want to convert a 9 speed road bike to flat bars and have some 3 X 9 acera shifters. I wondered if they would work for a 2 speed front set up?

    Front derailleur with wide throw

    Is there a front derailleur that will throw to a chainwheel around 50mm from the seat tube (or a way of adopting an existing one). I have fitted a bottom bracket motor to a hybrid and the supplied chainwheel is shaped to overcome the projection of the motor. Fitting a further chainwheel, the...

    Bent front derailleur - advice.

    I managed to throw my chain today as is I simultaneously changed down and crashed over a giant pothole. The chain managed to get jammed against the frame as I layed on the power resulting in bending the front derailleur. I've spent about three hours this afternoon trying to get it straight and...

    Brifter for front derailleur difficult to use

    Problem with front derailleur / gear shifter

    Hoping someone can give some advice on the problem I am having with shifting between the 2 front rings on my Sirrus. The shifter was stiff but operating, but then the chain stopped moving to the big ring. The problem was fixed but returned after a few days. I then took the bike to the LBS for...
