I got a set of exage brake/shifter levers and the shifting part is getting lousy now. So, I have some questions. But first, It's a 7-speed setup.
1: The interior of the Exage shifters is plastic. Which one/ones of Shimanos shifter levers are not plastic inside but metal?
2: Is it possible to just change the shifter levers and keep the brake levers? What other of Shimanos range do fit on the same brake levers as Exage shifters? And see above, is any of those made of metal?
3: In case I have to change it all. What Shimano brake/shifter levers do come without optical gear indicator? And also the brakes needs to be to cantilever brakes, NOT V-brakes.
4: If I change the levers, can I keep the derailleur (if it is in good condition) and just replace levers and cables/housing or will I notice "bad shifting" because of the Exage derailleur?
Thanks alot... As you might suspect I am doing a MAJOR overhaul of my MTB. It has been out in the rain for a month and today it was a storm and a Hammock fell over it. My mother dug it out and salvaged it in to the bathroom
