I have a question regarding my Shimano 7-speed below-the-bar shifter on my GT Aggressor. Last week I lent my bike to a friend and he apparently braked too hard on the front brakes and flipped over the handles. The bike came back with only a few scratches (Friend was okay as well ) but today when I decided to go for a bike ride I noticed that the "LOW" shifter wouldn't "push in". It was getting caught on the "shifter unit" as if it were bent. It doesnt look bent nor does it look like it could bend back. The shifter is one whole "unit" so it's not like I can really do anything without taking it apart.
Here is my speed shifter: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...mb_shifter.JPG
Any ideas? Thanks
