Cycling in Brisbane Australia
Riding back from a river loop, my right hand shifter made a rather strange noise. Then ended up in a very odd position
Then a few meters later it came completely off
Have never see or had that happen before. They aren't particularly old (~6mths/3000km). Wonder if it had happened to anyone else.
BikeBug.com (where I got the groupset from) were great and are sending a replacement after a short call this morning.
Sorry, no experience with SRAM. I had my Shimano shifter break one day. Of course, Shimano don't stock parts, so you have to buy a whole new shifter. Which they didn't have either. So, they ended up cutting me a very good deal on a second hand shifter. That's just how they roll.
It did strike me as being like Toyota not having any oil filters for a corolla in stock... but there you go.
Thanks Paul, I was going to investigate that but they have shipped me a full replacement under warranty so it may have to wait until next time.
