    Loose STI Shifter

    Greetings,

    My Lemond Nevada City arrived yesterday and one of the things I noticed about it is the right STI shifter (105 component) feels very loose and sloopy. For example when you want to shift to a smaller chain ring there's at least 1/2 an inch of travel before the click is made and the chain shifts down.

    Can these shifters be adjusted/tightened up or does it need to be tossed into the garbage and replaced?

    FWIW, we're talking about 105 shifters on a '99 Lemond, 8 speed drivetrain, other compoents are Sora.

    Zack

    Sounds like the cable tension is off. Try tightening that up at the barrel adjuster, when it is the small chain ring until the tension is taught.
