New Tiagra 4700 announced, to be released in juni - not an aprils fools!
Still a 10 speed group, but with trickle down technology en masse: 4 bolt crankset, compact 5800-style levers, redesigned front mech...
When 5800 was released last year I thought to myself "Why would anyone who's not a sponsored pro racer buy Ultegra or Dura Ace now?".
If 4700 packs the quality it looks like, it may just have made 5800 more or less redundant.

Hey /n/, I'm not sure where I should have posted this but I think this has my best chance.
So I bought and assembled a bike recently, and everything went really well until the very last part: The front derailleur.
Fucking christ, I'm about to throw this thing out of the window, /n/.
I bought a Diamondback Overdrive Sport (an entry-level above-average quality mtb), but I don't have a LBS anywhere close to me, so I had to buy it online and assemble it myself. I figured it was a good idea because I would understand the bike more and be familiar with the inner workings of it. But the fucking derailleurs are kicking my ass.
Here's the deal. Upon initial setup, the rear derailleurs worked fine. The high and low limit settings seemed to be fine. The gears changed smoothly and without hesitation or catching. But the front derailleurs wouldn't move from Second to First. It would move from First to Second to Third to Second smoothly and without issue, but Second to First would not work. So I adjusted the low and high limit settings according to the assembly guide and various videos online, and then it went from Second to First perfectly. So I went through the gears and found that now it wouldn't move from First to Second smoothly. The chain would catch and fall back off. I noticed that the cable was slack, so I moved it back to First, pulled the slack out, and tried again. No luck.
I decided maybe I should double check the rear Derailleur. I literally made zero adjustments to it, and now it won't move to First gear. The others work smoothly.
I've been stuck on this for 3 days.
I've looked up youtube videos, posted on various social media, etc, and cannot find out what I'm doing wrong. Any bikefags out there with advice?
Also, closest LBS is an hour or so away and I have no way to transport the bike. This is a DIY through and through.

/BQG/ - Bike Questions General
Why Can't I Hold All These Bikes edition

I'll start it off:
I recently came into possession of 3 older bikes, lets call them Bike 1, Bike 2, and Bike 3
I took a look at them and the most quality parts are:
>the frame from bike 1 (men's frame)
>the drops and gearing of bike 2 (10 speed, headtube shifters)
>the wheel size of bike 3 (27 inch)
how difficult would it be to take the shifters and Chainrings/Chain/Pedals/Bottom bracket off of bike 2 and the wheels from bike 3, and put them on the frame of bike 1?
