Siezed/Stuck Shimano Ultegra Brifter
I was building up a new bike w/ older brifters, had just run the shift cable, and was going to adjust the FD when I shifted it and it just stuck there. Now, no manner of huffing, puffing, banging, or tinkering can un-stick it. Any ideas?
Haven't been able to find much online, so I figured I'd ask before I huck this thing in the dumpster. I disassembled it down to the lever and body and was able to rebuild it, but I'm scared that if I go any further than that that I'll never be able to get it back in one piece again. I'm looking to get a new shifting lever mechanism on ebay, but I was hoping someone would have some sage advice before I pony up the money and have to wait.
