I'm with you on the tighter than spec Bowden cable. The SD is slightly tight to delay the shifts a bit because it doesn't need much pedal to move out smartly. If the cable is not at spec, the transmission might be using first gear as standard.

If it was a bit warmer, I'd experiment with it............
