How Do You Setup Mountain Bike Gears?


To setup mountain bike gears, loosen or tighten your shifter cable using the barrel adjusters. This makes it easier to shift to a higher gear. Regulate your shifting further by using the barrel adjusters to loosen or tighten the cable once again. Finally fine tune your shifting by using the limit adjustment screws located on top of the derailleur. Your gears are adjusted accurately when your chain does not jump or chatter.
