I laid hands on my derailleurs

Just to let you know. I sort of moved into a new dimension.

My rear derailleur was totally off whack with random shifts and non-shifts (new bike, stretching cables, been to the shop already and it's far) - so I counsulted Sheldon Brown, may he rest in peace.

adjusted the tension on the back and the limiters on the front derailleur - I felt very grown up

Congrats! The derailler adjustment was my first official tweek, too, and I felt like a complete goddess for figuring it out for myself instead of taking it to the shop.

Careful, you've now awakened a very curious beast! Those blue Park Tools will start becoming really attractive...

I thought you were going to relate how you laid hands on the derailleurs, said "all you devils come OUT!", and the derailleurs were healed!

Very cool, rabbit!

Sheldon in; demons out!

very nice!!

I've just gotten curious about the workings, but i'm not quite confident to adjust it, nevermind know how it should be in the first place...
