sorry in advance but i just realized i should posted it in this thread and not in the road thread
ok i rebuilt my bike today on a new frame and everything by fluke was perfect. the headset fit.. my BB happened to be italian threads which is what i needed. i had to by a brazeon FD tho. o well 25bux CDN for Shimano 600EX. not bad.
The problem i am having is with the shifters. They are DT Shimano 600 shifters. They are downtube. The front one works fine but the back on now when I try to shift it up to the larger cogs it just springs right back and goes to the smallest cog. The shifter is dual mode (SIS and friction). When i try to shift the shifter just gets looser and looser and even when tightening the screw it just gets looser. I also cant recover my SIS shifting from turning the thing. The result is it will just come loose. Can someone please tell me what i did and how do i fix it as i kinda need to shift. When i transferred parts i was sure to keep them organized and put them back just as i took them off. Thanks. BTW its not the derailleur cuz i had the friction shifting working for 5 minutes and then it crapped out on me again. I cant get SIS to work or shifting to work now. Thanks
