Introduzione

The front and rear derailleurs (pronounced "derailer" but spelled this way because of the French) are what move the bike's chain back and forth across your gear sets, allowing you to shift between different gear combinations and thus handle a variety of speeds and inclines.

However, in order for the derailleur to work properly, it needs to be adjusted so that it's shifting over the correct range. That's what this guide will show you how to do.
