Help needed - sram x-4 replacement
#1
Howdy all.

I need some guidance. I am trying to correctly install a new sram x-4 rear deraileur on my diamondback insight rs and get it properly adjusted. I can send clear pics of whatever you need to help me get my machine back on the road. I think I am close to having it mounted correct but it just doesn't "look" right.

Please let me know if you can help and how to get started. If it just so happens you could use some pc purchase, use or repair advice or remote assistance I'd be happy to return the favor.

Any help appreciated.

At first it did not want to move to the smallest cog. After adjusting the H screw out a good bit and tightening the barrel adjust 1 click at the handlebar it now moves from highest to lowest cog. It probably isn't the smoothest but I'll pay close attention on my next short ride so I know just what it does traveling between cogs.
