Shifting down stiff/hard

Hi guys. Wonder if anyone could help. This has only just recently happened to me. I've just fitted new chain,sprockets & tyre and I'm experiencing difficulties down shifting. The chain is not tight and properly adjusted so I don't think it's that. Even synchronising the revs and dropping a gear it's still stiff. Going up through the gears is smooth as always but going down is horrible. any ideas???

Re: Shifting down stiff/hard

Check the shifter hardware is moving freely and there are no loose bolts. Proper use of Loctite may help.

I've checked it all over and everything seems to be fine

Hi, just to add my tuppence, did you change any settings on the bar change when you took the equipment off to get at the front sprocket, maybe just needs adjustment on the bar change for rider foot position

Hi, I took the rod off to get at the sprocket but I put it back in the same position. Bit confused in what else it could be. I might raise the gear lever to see if it feels any better
