I just got a new (to me) roadbike with ultegra brifters. I think that the bike was in a moderate crash, because the logo faceplate of the shifter is a little loose, and the whole assembly is rattly going over rough pavement. How do I tighten it up to lose the rattle?
Possibly related: on the stand, everything works fine. But on the road, the downshift paddle for the rear derailler does not actually pull and cable unless the brake lever is slightly nudged inward. THat is, I need to swing the paddle out while bringing it in to me slightly. Is this common? How do I fix it?
Before you ask: cable tension is fine when completely upshifted, indexing works great. I *think* that the problem is solely in the shifter, but I'm open to suggestion.
