Help getting lovely Mercian back on road
Hi, I have a great 15 year old hardly used Mercian race bike with shimano 105 sti 8 speed gears. A while ago i stupidly removed the central Allen bolt from the right brake lever and all went wrong, now lost the bolt and I been told by local bike shop that hundreds of parts will be misaligned now and only option is new lever. 2 questions, does ths make sense and what are my options of a replacement ? I'm struggling to find a single replacement lever of same style so can i for e.g go for a 9 speed lever ? Appreciate views please !
