    Replacement shifter?

    We have a couple of Yeah folding bikes that use the Shimano SL-TX50-6R shifters. On one bike, the plastic housing for the shifter is cracked / broken. It's a 6 speed shifter. Does anyone know if it can be replaced with another brand shifter? If not, is there somewhere one can buy a Shimano replacement online?

    Looking around on the internet, I see the part listed, but not a place to purchase it.

    Thanks.

    Here's an exact replacement on UK ebay, and they seem to be willing to ship to the US: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/SHIMANO-RIGHT-...101110001r7377

    I know a pro bike mechanic who swears by the Shimano SL-TX30 shifters like these. My own experience with them is that they're inexpensive and work very well.
