In week 7 we cover Shifters and Derailleurs. We will add new shifter cables and housing to project bikes. Chains will be installed and we will cover how to measure appropriate chain length. We will also check and align front and rear derailleurs as well as check and adjust the limit screws of the derailleurs. We will cover the difference between friction and index shifting and go over how to adjust shifting of both. This will include an overview of the parts worked on and the tools used for this procedure.
