I have a question about how good of an adjustment one can get with a NR front derailleur/crank with a 5 speed rear cluster.

The question is, from your experience, how many rear cogs can you hit without having to adjust the front derailleur to prevent rub?

On my other bikes (simplex mostly), I can shift over 3-4 cogs without having to fine tune the front to prevent rub. And I find the larger chainwheel is more sensitive.

On my Raleigh International, I seem to not be able to move 1 cog without having to adjust the front derailleur, again, especially when on the larger chainwheel.

So before I go and work on it, I thought I would find out from y'all what to expect. Thanks in advance.
