I done gone ****ed up...and I need help.
I bought a tool kit and degreaser and stripped down by 2004 Giant OCR 1. I didn't want to mess with the headset or the bottom bracket since they were giving me no trouble. EVERYTHING else was taken apart. Unfortunately, I went one (literally one) screw too far on my rear Ultegra 6510 shifter. It was pretty confusing, but I got it back together and everything was working until I tried to recalibrate my rear derailleur. The shifter stopped working. At this point I know I'm bloody well screwed, but I hold my breath and start poking and prodding until the shifter explodes in my hands.
I know I can here all of you guys groaning (I'm buying Campy next time), but I have three questions:
1) Does ANYONE rebuild these? I've seen conflicting info online. There's one guy on Facebook who has decent reviews and supposedly does mail-away rebuilds. A rebuild is, theoretically, the cheapest way out of this situation.
2) If I'm out of luck, where can I get a Shimano-compatible rear shifter for a 9spd. The 6510 is only available used on eBay.
3) If I'm forced to blow several hundred bucks for being a fool, should I just get a new pair of shifters? Which ones? I'm already into this for more money that I ever imagined - I'm using a triple chainring up front and a 9spd cassette/freehub in the back. I don't want to replace these...
Thanks in advance
