Sorry I meant that bringing a Walmart bike to a pro bike shop will cost more to fix than the bike is worth.

ive relaxed the shifter cable and all the housing with new. Iíve also tried to replace the shifter with a sram unit and spent an hour trying to get it to index correctly. As the previous poster suggested the falcon units are not unheard of to index correctly. So Iíve tried the simple (cheap) stuff.

Iíve actually got an old shimano xt unit (9 speed) floating around that I might have a go with but could I use a derailleur that was 9 speed with index shifters (index shifter is long gone) with a 5 speed and grip shift??

so those worried about cost fear not! The xt derailleur I have is free and has been sitting in a box for years
