Re: Python Paragon gear change problems

Many thanks for all your comments. I backed off L and released the cable a bit via the Allen key and chain easily goes down the gears. Now it slightly struggles to go up the gear with the front cog, so I presume I will turn the L screw clockwise a half turn at a time until the chain will go up the g...

Re: Python Paragon gear change problems

Have backed off L by 3 turns and cable still isn’t slack. Changing down no better. The inner chain is approx 5 mill from outer cage. Should I do anything with W screw?

Re: Python Paragon gear change problems

Hi Brucey. I turned L back half a turn and tested it. It didn’t appear to make much difference. So backed off ACW again half a turn. Tested again and once again didn’t make much, if any, difference. Still struggles to go down the gears. As a point of interest the L screw was already backed off quite...

Re: Python Paragon gear change problems

Thanks Brucey. I never change down under any real stress but this problem happens on the slightest slope.

Re: Python Paragon gear change problems

Good point. I’ve just tried to change down on a slight slope and it wouldn’t go. So stopped bike and tried to move gear selector by pushing on it as you suggested but it wouldn’t move any further.

Python Paragon gear change problems

I have just purchased a Python Paragon bike with Suntour XR300 gear changing mechanism. The problem is the gear change isn’t smooth and struggles to change down into the lower front cog unless there is no torque whatsoever on the gears. I have to find an area of road where there is no slope, or even...
