Wednesday night I tried the other position for the front derailleur lever and found that I didn't like it because the lever was pointing to far out past the bars for the smaller front ring. I called The Goats and they told me that I can take apart lever and adjust the post. It took me 30 minutes to do so, and I had to call them back on one particular subject but eventually I got it moved two clicks and now the lever is in the best spot, for me at least.
Friday morning I set out on my 22 mile ride to the office and the first shift into the big ring was so smooth and effortlessly that I knew all the previous night's work was 100% worth it.
Trimming is so much better now and going into the big ring doesn't hurt my wrist anymore!
I love riding this bike
