Ultegra Triple Adjusment(4 posts)

Just spent all of last night adjusting my front Ultegra Triple derailleur, and I still couldn't prevent chain rub in some of the crossover gear combinations. Is it possible to get the derailleur adjusted so that I can use the full range of gear combinations without chain-derailleur rub? I would think with the price they charge for Ultegra, Shimano would have the rub thing eliminated.

I put 2000 miles on my Ultegra triple and was never successful in eliminating chain rub in the easiest gears of the middle chain ring.

Did you use the trim adjustment? You know, a light 1/2 shift of a click that moves the shifter just a little depending upon what gear you are in. Use it on my triple all the time, 12x25 and no rubbing.

and it worked great. I could use all the gears with the middle and big chain ring with no rub and with no trim adjustment. I used the bike for a year and it always worked perfectly. I had heavy rub if I tried to use the small chaingear with small cogs but that never should be done anyhow.

Then I changed to a double so I could get 180mm long cranks and now the shifts are terrible. I can use all the cogs with the big chainring without having to trim. But when I use the small chainring (39) I have to do a trim to use the small cogs. I do not like to do this. I have tried to adjust it myself and in two LBS and still does not work like the triple use to.
