Shimano 105
#1
Hey guys, I am new to shimano 105 basically new to cycling (last bike i bought was 20 years ago) and bought a charge juicer high. A great bike but seems like the derailers are a bit off. I took it back once so far for adjustment but after about another 30 miles they went back to not quite right. The rear doesn't shift right when in the low gears and the front shifts slow when going to bigger sprocket. Any ideas or is 105 just this?

105 is a good quality group and should perform very well (when it is in adjustment). It may just be cable stretch. The newer gear systems work great when everything is right, but they can be a little finicky about everything being "just so". Once broken in and adjusted, it should settle down and behave itself. Make them adjust it again...

Thanks so much for your response. I bought a hybrid bike a few years ago and never had this problem with shifting. I will take it in for a quik adjustmnt and go frim there.
