Had some new cables put in about a month ago and I guess they have stretched a bit. Now front shifting takes a bit more 'push' to get to the middle and large rings, can this be simply fixed using the adjuster on the shifter?

Cheers

Greg

yeah, you should be able to take up the slack with that adjuster, but it's fairly straightforward to just pull the slack through at the front derailleur and re tighten up the nut there. I like to leave the shifter adjuster for very fine tuning that some times you notice when out on a ride.
