Shifter/Cable Slack
#1
Hello,

I am having some issues with a SRAM Apex rear shifter and the rear derailleur. I have pulled the shift cable tight and through the holding bolt of the rear derailleur and the barrel adjuster is turned all the way in clockwise. Shifting to easier gears works well, but shifting to the harder gears does not. The shifter clicks but the cable does not stay seated in the spool and remains slack when shifting to harder gears from easier gears ( see picture).

You have a bind in your housing some where, a kink in your cable or a fray in the cable some where, and check the endcaps too.

That was it, I replaced the old housing and lubed the cable and housing. Thank you.
