to just fall off - at least not until there has been some abuse over time anyway.

I guess I'm just anal that way - if it was my bike I would be back at the bike shop
finding out what they will do to make it right.

In the final analysis, glue may be the best solution.
It's a non-essential piece of plastic. Who cares?

I refer to my indicators all the time to know what gear I'm in . . . especially when I'm approaching the lip of a jump or a big drop. Never can be too sure.

Don't suppose there's any correlation between that and my crashing stupendously is there? Naw . . . .

I figured the racers here really liked knowing what gear they are in.

I am working on a project to bluetooth my shifter indicators and HRM to a head up display inside my Ryder sunglasses.

OMG, you are headed down the path to doom!!




On another note, what's a "head up" display? I can only envision



Sorry, it's just the way I'm wired, G.

If small things like that bother you, I'll suggest keeping your bike off of the trail. Really. How's that for constructive?

Hey mcscooby. I cant believe you wasted your time engaging with these D bags! Get ahold of Shimano and they will gladly help you replace the gear window. And don't be discouraged by forum fools...most of us are here to help. Ride on brother!!!

You're encouraging someone who hasn't been around since 2009...
