i have an older schwinn le tour with a suntour arx drivetrain. I'm not very knowlageable about bicycle matainence (but i''m trying to slowly become somewhat alright with it) and heres my problem: the front derailer is jamed. its possitioned far to close to the frame when the shifting lever is all the way down (in this possition, it rubs against the chain and that can't be good) and when i try to shift, it can't move outward far enough. i tried re-tentioning the cable but it didn't work....i know i need to adjust the actuall shifter somehow but i don't know which of the 2 screws on the front derailer does what so can anybody help me?

Front mechs are pretty simple. I'm sure that a step by step adjustment page is at , but for some reason I can't connect right now to get you the actual url.... try it yourself, and follow the links.
