Making sure your bike shifts from one chainring to the other without the chain falling off either the largest ring or conversely the smallest is pretty simple when you know how. Here we show you how to replace and adjust your front derailleur so that it it works perfectly.

In the video we are using a Shimano Dura Ace braze on front mech, but the principle remains the same if you're using a clamp on front derailleur, and the techniques for aligning and setting up your derailleur are exactly the same no matter which of the many derailleur types you are using.
