Hi,

Over the past few months I have been driven crazy by rattling in my Shimano 105 R7020 shifters. I've heard its a common problem with hydraulic levers without the cable tension of brake cables. The rattling only occurs when climbing on the tops so not all the time. I've tried all sorts to fix the problem without success so just wondered whether any of you guys have had the same issue and any suggestions to stop the rattle!

Cheers! :D

Is it the flags hitting the brake levers? May take a bit of tape on one of the two and see if the noise goes away.
