Has anyone had continuous problems with their front derailleur? My 2012 x7 FD seems to not want to work with me at all.

When I shift gears up (2x10), the FD moves but the chain doesn't. So what happens is the chain continues to ride on the smaller ring while rubbing against the FD. In order to shift up i have to slowly pedal and shift slowly. This gets annoying when i need it on the fly.

I've done countless home tuning and several expensive tunes at the shop but it works for about an hour of riding and right back to the same. Does anyone know of any compatibility issues between the s2200 carbon crank, x7 front derailleur, and SLX shifters that came stock on the bike? Im thinking about upgrading to xtr shifters and xtr FD soon here but just wondering if anyone had similar issues with these stock components and if there were any suggestions.

Thanks guys!

My FSR Elite 2011 was like that. I've solved it by tensioning the cable to the limit. The shifter became a bit stiff but at least it worked. I hate SLX and X7 FD combo anyway,it's on my elite 2013 and I've just tuned it,shifting sucked. Missing SRAM...
