      ok...
      so here is the deal with rear derailleurs and cogsets

      the top pully of the rear derailleur is supposed to be adjusted so
      that it is riding close to the cogset

      the best way to do this is to shift the rear into the smallest cog
      and maybe the middle ring up front

      there is a small adjustment screw on the rear derailleur at the rear
      derailleur bracket
      that is...the spot where the derailleur actually bolts to the frame
      that little screw makes the adjustment.

      so if the top pulley of the rear derailleur is too far away from the
      cogset...
      there may be issues in shifting performance.

      however...
      i'd be hard pressed to say that every bike out there is properly
      adjusted
      and they all seem to shift just fine.

      so fyi

      peace...d
