Front derailleur
General Safety Information
WARNING
• Obtain and read the service instructions carefully prior to
installing the parts. Loose, worn, or damaged parts may
cause injury to the rider.
We strongly recommend only using genuine Shimano
replacement parts.
• Be careful not to let the cuffs of your clothes get caught in
the chain while riding, otherwise you may fall off the
bicycle.
• Read these Technical Service Instructions carefully, and
keep them in a safe place for later reference.
Note
• If gear shifting operations cannot be carried out smoothly,
clean the derailleur and lubricate all moving parts.
• If the amount of looseness in the links is so great that
adjustment is not possible, you should replace the
derailleur.
• When the chain is in the position shown in the illustration,
the chain may contact the front chainrings or front
derailleur and generate noise.
If the noise is a problem, shift the chain onto the nextlarger rear sprocket or the one after.

• For smooth operation, use the specified outer casing and
the bottom bracket cable guide.
• Grease the inner cable and the inside of the outer casing
before use to ensure that they slide properly.
• This front derailleur is for triple front chainwheel use only.
It cannot be used with the double front chainwheel, as the
shifting points do not match.
• For the chain, be sure to use only the Shimano narrow
type chain. The wide type chain cannot be used.
• Parts are not guaranteed against natural wear or
deterioration resulting from normal use.
• For maximum performance we highly recommend
Shimano lubricants and maintenance products.
• For any questions regarding methods of installation,
adjustment, maintenance or operation, please contact a
professional bicycle dealer.

Installation of the front derailleur
Adjust and then install the front derailleur as shown in the illustration.
Do not remove the Pro-Set alignment block at this time.

The level section of the chain guide outer plate should be
directly above and parallel to the largest chainring.
Secure using a 5mm Allen key.

Be sure to follow the sequence described below.
1. Low adjustment
First remove the Pro-Set alignment block. Next, set so
that the clearance between the chain guide inner plate
and the chain is 0 - 0.5mm.

4. Cable adjustment using the intermediate chainring
When making the cable adjustment, place the chain on the largest
sprocket for the rear and the middle chainring for the front.
Note: There are 2 derailleur positions for the intermediate chainring. When
making the cable adjustment, make sure that the derailleur is in the
inner side (toward small chainring) of the two positions. Locate the
derailleur to this position by shifting from the largest to the
intermediate chainring (recommended) or by shifting from the small to
the intermediate chainring, then gently press lever (b) until a small
click is felt (to position the derailleur to the inner side of the
intermediate chainring).
Adjust the cable tension by using the outer adjustment barrel so that
the clearance between the chain guide inner plate and the chain is 0 0.5 mm.

2. Connection and securing of cable
While pulling the inner cable, tighten the wire fixing
bolt with a 5 mm allen key to secure the cable.
Tightening torque:
5 - 7 N·m
{44 - 60 in. lbs.}
While turning the crank arm, gently operate lever (b) and check that
the front derailleur moves slightly toward the smallest chainring. If the
front derailleur moves by a large amount and the chain is set onto the
smallest chainring at this time, loosen the top adjustment bolt by 1/8th
of a turn. Then, after returning the
chain to its original position, adjust
and check the trimming mechanism.

After completion of steps 1 - 4, move the shifting lever to check the
shifting. (This also applies if shifting becomes difficult during use.)
If the chain falls to the crank side
Tighten the top adjustment screw
clockwise (about 1/4 turn).
If shifting is difficult from the intermediate
chainring to the largest chainring
Loosen the top adjustment screw
counterclockwise (about 1/8 turn).
If shifting is difficult from the intermediate
chainring to the smallest chainring
Loosen the low adjustment screw
counterclockwise (about 1/4 turn).
If there is interference between the chain
and the front derailleur inner plate at the
largest chainring
Tighten the top adjustment screw
clockwise (about 1/8 turn).
If there is interference between the chain
and the front derailleur outer plate at the
largest chainring
Loosen the top adjustment screw
counterclockwise (about 1/8 turn).
If the intermediate chainring is skipped
when shifting from the largest chainring
Loosen the outer casing adjustment
barrel counterclockwise (1 or 2 turns).
If there is interference between the chain
and front derailleur inner plate when the
rear sprocket is shifted to the largest
sprocket when the chainwheel is at the
intermediate chainring position.
Tighten the outer casing adjustment
barrel clockwise (1 or 2 turns).
If the chain falls to the bottom bracket
side.
Tighten the low adjustment screw
clockwise (about 1/2 turn).
Be sure to read these service instructions in conjunction with the service
instructions for the ST-6603 before use.
