[title] Adjust the Shifter Cable Adjustment Barrel for Optimum Shifting
[* black] Turn the cranks and shift the chain into one of the sprockets in the center of the cassette
[* black] Adjust the barrel adjuster to eliminate running noise on the cassette if any is present
[* black] Sight down the back of the bike to see if the chain needs to be adjusted in towards the wheel (turn barrel counter-clockwise) or out (turn barrel clockwise)
[* black] Shift gears up and down through the cassette, pausing on each sprocket to listen for ticking/running noise, adjusting the barrel 1 click at a time to eliminate noise
[* icon_note] Shift the cassette into the largest steel sprocket, and listen for rubbing noise between the chain and smallest aluminum sprocket. If rubbing is present, turn the barrel adjuster clockwise 1 turn, then shift out of the largest steel cog then back into that cog and re-check for rubbing
[* black] Switch the clutch switch lever to ON, and Shift through all the gears one last time to check for any outstanding issues - make small adjustments (1 click) at a time if necessary.. A little goes a long way!
