- To prevent the chain from falling off of the cassette, you can install a chain catcher. These are not necessary but can come in handy.
1. Before you connect your front derailleur cable, you will want to set the Lo limit adjustment screw. To do this, put your chain in the small ring of your crankset (it should already be there by default) and shift to the largest gear of your cassette.
4. Next we will want to connect the front derailleur cable. Begin by passing the cable under the front derailleur cable bolt.
6. Tighten the derailleur cable bolt to the manufacturer’s recommended torque value using a torque wrench (see Figure 3).
7. It’s now time to set the Hi limit of your front derailleur. Shift your chain into the big ring of the crankset and the smallest gear of your cassette.
10. If this is a new front derailleur cable, it will more than likely stretch after shifting through your gears the first few times. After shifting through the gears the first few times, be sure to back off the front derailleur cable bolt and re-tension the cable.
