    wiiipe out

    Heya,

    I went for a ride today, and met some dirt jumps and went off some. On one, I did a bad x-up and fell on my aisde, the handle bars turned still, locking my leg. I was fine, but the rear derailler shifter had issues. I can use the trigger that causes the gears to become smaller, downshifting, but the one that rasies the chain gets stuck and after shifting up 3, I can't let it shift further. Help. Please.

    PS. Theres no dirt caught in between the triggers.

    Get a new shifter maybe?


    Or get a singlespeed to do that crap (I'm saying this even though you'll whine and complain and come up with 500 reasons you suck, or singlespeeds suck, or something).

    Sound's like you're in need of a trip to the LBS. It's probably either the shifter, cable housing or rear derailleur. It has to be one of those actually...

    Alright. It's probably the shifter and the spring tensioning.

    Could be a bent derailleur or hanger. Does everything look aligned from the rear of the bike?
