Right crank install
#1
I replaced my right crank. Now it is hard to shift into the highest gear on the front. Would this be because I didn't get it on the square taper far enough or an adjustment to the derailleur? I have the twist type shifters. How do you know when you have the crank on the taper far enough?

I have it shifting correctly now after adjusting my derailleur.
