Hi, I'm a newer cyclist that picked up a great deal on a road bike, the only problem was that the seller told me that the springs needed to be replaced in the FD and RD (which I call BS on). The bike itself is in phenomenal condition, just has been sitting in the sellers garage for years. I've taken it to 2 different bike shops and an LBS. The LBS told me to replace the shifters which were $160 + labor. The 2 retail shops told me that the LBS was screwing me over and that I just needed to clear out grease that gathers from inactivity that was giving the shifters issues, with windex. I trust the shops over the LBS but I'm just wondering why the shifters are still giving no resistance what so ever when I try to shift down. The RD can shift to the smallest cog but wont shift down. The FD will shift down to the 39 but not up to the 52. Thanks so much for any help on this issue!
