Index Barends not Indexing properly
I have a nice 'nuff 24 speed Trek 520 with bar end shifters.
The index function on the rear was working just fine until I took it off last time to redo a broke brake handle.
I put it back on, now the index "skips" gears. The top & bottom of it seem to be just fine, but it works as a friction shifter for a few of the middle ones.
When I put it into friction mode it works just fine of course, so I ain't dying, but it bugs me, & I did like the indexing silly though that may seem.
I really don't want to upgrade it to a 9 since everything else is in great shape, so no need to go down that road, but any positive suggestions would be appreciated.
Any ideas?? is this thing toast???
