Good idea to get the brakes dialed in at least. Should have plenty of braking power with what you have on there.Thanks guys.
I rode it around for a while this afternoon. There's a fairly steep hill close by and it climbed it easily with the internal low gear. I got a little concerned on the trip back down though. It's pretty fast on those 700c tires. I was worried about getting too fast before making sure that everything is road tested for a while.
Did you use indexed shifter cable? (compresionless). Not sure if that could be it but it's a possibility. The metal part of the housing should run along the length of the cable instead of in a spiral.I'm having problems getting the rear derailleur dialed in. I haven't been able to get it to move over all eight cogs. I can adjust it to get either 1 through 7 or 2 through 8. I'm starting to have doubts about the grip shift.
+1, would love to see a ride video! It looks great in the picture but i bet on the street it look out of this world.That could be it. If your derailleur is the SRAM 1:1 type you probably do need a different shifter. The SRAM shifter you have on there is made to work with Shimano derailleurs (at least the one like it that we have is).
Ride vid would be cool! Really love this bike and this was a great thread to watch.
Edit: I just looked at your parts list and see it says SRAM 1:1 derailleur on there. You'll need a SRAM 1:1 shifter. Sounds like you have one so that's good.
