    9 speed 105 shifters getting long in the tooth..replace one or both?

    The right side shifter on my Fuji Cross is becoming very loose and worn down but the left side is very firm and has no play. In a case like this, should just one shifter be replaced or both be done at the same time? I've never had to do this before..

    not unusual as the right side is used more often than the left.
    see what sort of deals you can find. some places have a good deal for a pair of shifters instead of just a right or left. You only need to replace the worn shifter, but if you're bothered at all about aesthetics or ergonomics, go for both.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)
