I've had my much loved Deore Shadow R.D. for about 3 months now, and its fantastic. However, I do remember when I first got it that it was a total PITA to adjust. Only having one cable spot, and the screws and all. I got it working pretty smooth, except on the rare occasions that it didn't catch the highest gear.

I am going to be tuning the bike up soon, and wanted some advice on tuning it. I know the basic premise, but I was wondering if anyone has any tips in particular on the shadow R.D.? I am still wondering if maybe my R.D. hanger is bent. No matter how hard I try, I can't seem to ever get it to perfectly align. Is that normal?

Thanks,

Dan

I run the same R.D, no problems at all with higher gears, i'm with agabriel on checking your hanger.. shifting should be super smooth

I work in a bike shop's workshop so I fiddle with gears all day long.

Shadows are a real pain in the ass to adjust. Saying that, I've just bought one.
