Changed cable in Sora brifter, and now it seems to be friction shifting?
This is very strange. I changed the shift/brake cables in my 8spd Shimano Sora right brifter, and now the shifting has a definite friction/semi-friction feel to it. This is only when downshifting (moving to larger cog, with the brake lever pushed to the left). The small thumb upshifter is definitely still indexed as it should be.
I made sure that the shift cable is well tensioned (could it be too tense?) Is there a chance the cable simply isn't seated right? I had to take the little plastic front/top cap off to replace the cables, so perhaps it was not lined up perfectly when I put it back in?
I started a new thread because from searches I could not find any similar complaints. Has anyone heard of this before?
The bike in question is a 2003 Fuji Finest, with either 3303 or 3304 Sora.
