Just looking to save myself some money and not have to buy a whole new set.
It is a Shimano SL-BS77 9 speed shifter and I am looking for the right (rear) shift lever.
Thanks, in advance for any help!
These are known to be fragile. If the index housing has broken, you can replace it with downtube shifters. but they cost almost as much as the bar-ends.
A tip: when you reassemble everything, make sure the shift-lever center screw is very tight. Otherwise, it works itself loose, leading to damage to the index mechanism.
Comcast nuked my web page. It will return soon..
