Sturmey-Archer trigger won't stay in gear
I've been using a traditional SA trigger shifter on my folding bike for more than a year, and recently it's started slipping out of first gear. The slipping seems to be mostly caused by road vibration, but I've had it happen a few times on perfectly smooth roads. The finger lever thingy (technical term) also rattles quite a lot, which is annoying, and I think the two problems are linked. Is this a common problem? If so, is there a fix, or do I need a new shifter?
Thanks in advance
