[QUOTE=Bill Kapaun;21497993]If it worked "fine" before, I'd think you have a cable/housing friction issue.

I finally pulled the cable and housing. The housing end that goes in the derail was fine. The end that goes into the shifter was a total mess! The brake and shift cables are zip locked together and have a spring around them to help hold them off the chain as I pedal, so I had never removed this portion to check it out before. It looked like instead of cutting the housing to length, it was pulled apart to length. The housing strands were all different lengths. Additionally, the cable had a kink in it; I replaced both and it shifts so much better! And the actuation is so light and smooth now!
