Had that horrible crunch sound on the way back from a ride today. The rhs shifter (the main one rather than the thumb) is now hanging somewhat limply but appears still able to shift. Unfortunately (well only for this) I'm out of the UK at the moment, so can't send it off to anyone but my gf is coming our shortly so cd bring a part with her.

Can anyone tell me if this is the part I need (EC-RE137) and whether it is as easy to replace as these guys suggest? If not which part do I need?

Thanks

    I don't know if your problem is the mentioned part, but IF it is, it's rather easy to replace it.
    All you need is remove the brake lever (Knock out the pin) and a fine pair of pliers.
  • Thanks Keezx. Anyone else know if it is likely to be the offending part, or what else it might be?

    I think I can get one. You'll have to email me.

  • It's actually not easy at all...

    The spring that holds the shifter in lace is a pig to install, unless you have watchmaker's skills.

    I thought ALL 9 speed shifters had alloy shifter levers, rather than the more modern censored plastic ones... clearly I was wrong
  • Thanks all.

    @Ugo it's an alloy shifter, don't think I mentioned plastic ones? I was thinking of getting the part and then getting a bike shop over here to do the work...

    @cycle clinic do you mean a pm here or an actual email? And are you saying that is the correct part (with the ltd. info I've been able to give)?

  • good luck with finding a bike shop who want to do it... :-/

    A email is what you think it is. Ergo power repairs can be done. Again I need an email.

    Yes I can get it and yes it can be fitted.
