Hi, new to the forum. seems like a great place with lots of knowledge about bikes. i am not a extreme rider by any means but i do enjoy getting out on the trails by my house as often as possible. i have a jeep comanche bike(i know peice of junk saving up for a trek 4300) anyway recently i have been having problems with shifting through my front gears. the shifter is extremely tight and you can hardly even turn it with two hands almost like the cable is to tight or something. if i pull out on the front derailer with my finger and twist the shifter at the same time then it works fine but i obviously cant do this while riding. i dont know whether the cable is rusted up or something the bike is fairly new but i am planning to try a new cable. let me know what you guys think.
