Trek 2200 (1993) and Shimano ST-1055

Hello,

I recently picked up a Trek 2200 with a full 105 group set, and have a few questions. The front derailleur and chain ring shifter work like butter. Now the problem I am having is the cassette shifter, for whatever reason it does not want to shift. Can someone suggest what may be the problem, on why it will not shift? Also can someone point me to the service manual to the shifters?

Thanks,
RH

Try flushing the shifter out with WD-40 or the like. Use lots. You may want to remove the shifter from the handlebar first, and remove the hoods.

There are other possible issues, but this would be a common one for shifters of that age.

If that doesn't work, search Shimano STI shifter repair on Facebook. He repairs 7-8 speed shifters, and has links to docs, too.

Is it not shifting (clicking into different gears)? or not moving? I assume you tried all the typical trouble shooting techniques like. removing the cable from the anchor and pulling on it and counting clicks while doing so? It is always possible the seller just doesn't have it set up correctly or something.

It is an 8 speed, and not the shifters move, and there is plenty of tension on the cable on the rear derailer, but will not move. I have not opened the shifter yet, but I think that will be my next on the agenda. The bike is in great shape, 8/10 cosmetically, I just need to get the rear shifter to work.

I wouldn't 'open' anything until you tried just flusing it out. Plenty of tension on the cable could be the problem. If someone was shifting the bike without turning the cranks and allowing the derailleur to move it is possible the shifter is just bound from the tension. Have you ever ridden and shifted this bike? If not I would sort of start from scratch and check the shifter as above and also check to see the derailleur moves freely without. The issue could be as simple as the cable is rusted or badly pinched in the housing somewhere.

1-gunked up.
2-cable installed when it was not zero'd out.
3-cable path compromised.

1 and 3 are easily fixed.
2 is not, but it can be extracted without a lot of disassembly.

If you plan to take them apart, and haven't done so before, STOP.
Consider an experienced repair/warranty for $65/set vs. buying a new set if you mess up.
Be glad you have 8-sp shifters.

Not criticizing your mechanical skills, but speaking from experience.

I think YouTube and other places have some video on it.
