I have just put a new cluster on my bike, went from a 12 - 23 to a 13-25 and now the chain scrapes the front derailer at the top and bottom on the large and small chain rings respectively of the cluster - not cross chaining, anyone know how I can adjust this? It's shimano by the way.

there are two nuts you can adjust with a screwdriver on the top of the front derailleur, one for h and one for L, i think u need to loosen or tighten both of those.

yes well back to the topic at hand. I also changed my rear cassette and haven't had a decent ride since. Been back to LBS three times and they've since changed the chain as well as the cassette. (the one I had on was only 6 months old) I'm seriously thinking of reverting back to the original cassette that came with the bike
