    “I’ve always been totally baffled by derailleurs and the difference between adjusting limit screws and cable tension. This video shined a giant spotlight on everything I didn’t understand and gave me a very complete understanding of how the whole shifting mechanism works – and what to do if it doesn’t. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to be a little more self sufficient and not need a mechanic every time a derailleur needs to be tweaked.”
