Just to rule this out, when the hood is rolled forward, it causes part of the mechanism to hang up. You can make one easier shift, but none after that. It may not allow you to shift to harder gears afterwards either.

yes, this happened to me. it took some time to figure out that the hoods were preventing the shifting. and also, the rubber hood was only ever so slightly touching the side...which prevented the shifting or actuation. once i pulled it out of the way, it shifted smoothly.

Its true I'm not a mechanic, as it turned out, issue didnt stem from anything I fitted incorrectly, issue was from incompatible cable guides (the metal end caps being slightly too slightly too narrow (despite running smoothly initially), causing chaffing on the plastic cable sheaths, these tiny bits of plastic eventually jamming the cable, and in turn causing shifting to damage shifter.

It wouldnt have been correct to expect shimano to replace it. Issue was caused by the cables I used. I did mention it to original bike shop, but as I said, I scratched this one up to being an expensive lesson.

I bought the bike from a village shop in south of France, I took the broken shifter to a local bike shop here in Luxembourg, which didnt want to service it, instead advising I take it to original shop, which is fair enough.

Thanks for all the help from this forum, I've learnt allot. Best, Tom


i've had excellent customer service directly from Shimano in the past. even when some metal parts corroded, Shimano sent me replacement parts without question. since your STI lever isn't working...i would try to see if you can contact Shimano directly for repair or replacement. at least you'll have a spare when you need it, or sell it to offset your cost on your original error.
