Dura Ace 9150 Front Mech - Low Limit

*EDIT: I INITIALLY POSTED THE QUESTION AS 9050, BUT I'M AN IDIOT (WHICH I LEARNT THANKS TO JEKYLL'S HELP :oops: )

Hi all. Am I right in thinking that the 9150 front mech doesn't have a low limit screw?

I can't locate it on the mech itself and there is no mention of it in the user manual.

I'm struggling as I can't get the inner plate close enough to the inside of the chain (when in small chainring large cassette), and using the electrical adjustment isn't getting me there as I completely run out of clicks when I'm still quite a distance off.

Would greatly appreciate the advice :)

:lol:

ive not seen a 9150 front mech, but is it possible that the steady bolt that angles the mech in and out (guess it has one like a 9070/6800 etc needs tweaking before the system sets itself properly?

9150 doesn't have a low limit screw and the way to set the limit is electronically. Put it in adjustment mode by pressing the junction box button for a few seconds and adjust the low limit with the left shifter.

Sorted - you were right it was to do with angles. The whole mech wasn't parallel with the chainset. It's not my morning...but at least sorted now.

Thanks for the help Jekyll!
