Just got that on my bike this morning, works perfect. I do have a question, right now the FD is set up to have 3 trim levels in the small ring, and two for the large ring, its working good, just want to make sure its right.
the set up is 50/34 by 11-23. In the big ring, I can be from 19-11 in the most outside setting, if I really need to be in the 21 or 23, then I can trim it to the inside a little bit before dropping to the 34. Please let me know if this is correct, or is there a better way to do this, Im totally happy how it is, I was just wondering=)

It should require 3 clicks of the finger lever to cover the full range of travel. From the big ring, one click will eliminate the chain rub when using the two largest cogs. The FD can also work OK with four clicks, but the first click of the finger lever probably does nothing but take up some cable slack.
