    When ever I settle into 5-6-7 on the rear cogs on a gentle peddle its fine change up and down fine (one click at a time) once its change if I start peddling hard it clicks up or down even although I’m not changing.

    Do I need to adjust the screw on the jockey where the cable comes through?

    Although there’ll be people on here that’ll probably know exactely what to do, I would recommend (if its a Shimano derailer) going to the Shimano website and download their instructions – I found them quite helpful when ‘tweaking’ my grears, brakes etc.

    Hope this helps

    how new is it and where did you buy it? most good bike shops will give you a free service after a few weeks because all bikes naturally stretch the cables a little after it’s been rode in. I assume the place you got yours will do the same.
