Re: Shimano STI Shifters

I did consider the pedals but they seemed OK. I am back to riding without listening for clicks....Thanks for the suggestions.

Re: Shimano STI Shifters

So nipping up the chainring bolts didn't cure the click. As I'd taken the cranks off to replace the chainrings I reset those pre-loading the cranks etc. etc. It still clicked. Then after 9 more miles of riding it just stopped. Now silent and shifting perfectly.

Re: Shimano STI Shifters

Yes slightly pendantic, but also helpful. Just checked the chainring bolts and they needed nipping up a bit more. Test ride soon. Thanks.

Re: Shimano STI Shifters

I went for a ride yesterday after I had posted about this and it worked perfectly! I have been replacing the drive train (chainrings, cassette, chain and jockey wheels) and trying to get the shifting just right and I think I have it now......and then I started getting a click from the crank area. No...

Re: Shimano STI Shifters

Thanks Brucey that is really helpful, I think the cable tension is quite high, I'll investigate. The bike is 2015 I think, Tiagra 4600 or 4650. Thanks for the links thelawnet.

Shimano STI Shifters

I have a Genesis bike fitted with Tiagra gearing. I have started to have shifting problems with the left hand shifter (2 speed). What is the lifespan of these? I understand from other posts that they are not repairable. Flushing it with GT85 has helped but I am still getting changes when the ratchet...

Re: tiagra jockey wheels

Many thanks for the help. I suspected the 4700 wheels would fit. I can get on and order some ready to overall everything.

tiagra jockey wheels

I am looking to replace the jockey wheels on my very worn Tiagra rear derailleur. It is an RD 4601 medium cage 10 speed. Will the ones advertised for Tiagra fit? I think there are some Tiagra parts that are not interchangeable and don't want to end up swearing as I discover I have the wrong parts. I...

Re: cateye mity 2

Thanks Samuel. I won't get rid of it for exactly that reason......I had though of buying something new and shiny but it works well and does everything I need it to.

cateye mity 2

I just tried to fit my ancient cycle computer (new in 1994) to a new bike with fatter handle bars. The holder is marked "bracket model G", opening looks to be an inch. Sensor is model E. Bars on my new bike are 31.8 mm. Is there a holder I can use to make this work? Is there one in your sp...
