My 2011 Cube Streamer with Ultegra shifters and 105 front deraileur won't shift down from the big ring.

Push in the lever for shifting to the small ring all the way and let go. Then try to pull out on the shift housing where it enters the lever.

If the housing won't move that means the lever has not released the cable. Try flooding the lever with a light spray lube. If that does not work do a search to see if there is a repair procedure - otherwise the lever will have to be replaced.

If the housing moves out and exposes the cable then there is something binding the cable, and you will have to free it or replace the cable and housing.

Frankly, if it's that important I would think you would have the bike shop fix it.

My speedometer is off ,110 is 105 on a GPS ,GPS was checked on another car ,right on .I'm also having some miner transmission shifting problems ,are they related ?

They very well could be. If you have aftermarket wheels on your car that are bigger or smaller, this can mess up shift timing and speed readings due to the wheels spinning at a different speed then the PCM expects them to.

I have a Shimano 105 derailleur system with 105 shifters. Shifting on the front derailleur from the top to the bottom ring is very stiff and sometimes takes two attempts with quite a loud poping sound and...

First of all you need to properly clean and oil the derailleur itself. As it is spring loaded, the shifting from top to the bottom ring envolves the spring to be pulled, thus making it harder the more you downshift. When you go back (upshift), the spring itself helps to do that and you feel the shifting much more easy. The easy way to do this: Take the deraiileur off the frame, but do not dismantle it. Get the new paintbrush about 1 inch wide. Get about 1 litre unleaded petrol (better is lighter fluid, but it comes more costly). Get a bowl. Get the lubricating oil (preferably with graphite). Put the derailleur into the bowl and pour the petrol over it, just to cover. Leave for a few hours. Then take a brush and clean all the dirt and grime off by using the petrol already in bowl. When done, dry the derailleur with kitchen paper towel and clean the brush. Get rid of dirty, used petrol. Now use the rest of clean petrol and clean derailleur again, then dry in the same way. When done, apply lubricating oil to all moving parts generously (don't forget jockey wheels). When done, get rid of excess oil using paper towels again until it is nice and clean. Fit back to the frame, re-cable and see how it works. If after all the problem still persist, then there is some fault in shifter itself. To sort this you will have to go on to the Shimano website and download instructions for your shifters. Hope it will help. Leave feedback if you are satisfied with my advice.

I have a set of shimano R700 shifters that came on my wifes bike. (Jamis Xenith Comp with a stock mix of Ultegra/105 & FSA gossamer compact cranks) I have built several road/Mtn bikes & never...

The problem is not with the derailleur tension - that is preset. If the levers worked properly on your wife's bike you may have the cable set just a bit too tight, so that there is too much tension against the outer limit stop when you shift to the large chainwheel. Try backing off the high limit screw. If you can then shift down OK you need to loosen the cable clamp and let the cable slip very slightly looser (and then restore the proper outer limit adjustment). If there's still a problem then the only culprit is the lever.

How to find determinant

Given a square matrix, you can find its determinant by using the determinant function available through SHIFT 4 7. SHIFT 4 brings up the matrix menu, and 7 selects the determinant function.

Refer to the "Matrix Calculations" section in the manual, beginning on page E-57, and items #096-105 in the appendix. If you've misplaced your manual and/or appendix, you can download them from

Shimano 105 front shifter problem

There will be adjustment, check the front derailleur. There is a wire which is held by a pinch bolt, undo the bolt pull the wire out a little, tighten up and check the gears again. Do this until it works.

Shimano 105 10 speed rear derailleur doesn't shift up or down well and doesn't stay in gear. Fairly new ( 250 miles)

Try this:
Set your shifter to the highest gear while turning the crank. If you have to, manually set the derailleur to the highest gear.
Release the derailleur cable by loosening its screw.
Pull the cable taut and re-tighten the screw that clamps the derailleur cable.
You should be all set.
The cable stretches over time. This can be avoided by "pre-stretching" new cables. To do this, simply shift into first gear and pull the derailleur cable away from the frame (where you are able to do so) fairly hard, several times. Then you just release and re-tighten the cable like mentioned in the steps above.
Happy riding!

Shimano 105. Front derailleur won't shift down

It sounds like you could have two different problems. Your derailleur has become contaminated or your shifter may need to be lubed. Either way, the likely solution is the same. The best solution to get the derailleur operating again is to spray it with GT-85 or PB blaster and manually move in back and furth until it is working again. The same goes for the 105 shifter, spray GT-85 inside the shifter by compressing the brake lever and spraying towards the head of the shift cable. This will solve a non-functioning shifter many times.

The only other problem that fits is the limit screws could be wrong or the deraileur is in the wrong position. This would not be the case unless someone adjusted your derailleur before the ride you started have that problem. Or if the derailleur has moved. Both of which require the derailleur to be fully readjusted.

Hope this helps. Thank you

On my bike with shimano ultegra shifters and 105 front deraileur, I can't shift onto the big chainring. The deraileur is not at the stop, but I can't move it any farther. How do I fix that.

Try this first:
Shift into the little ring and release the cable. Pull it tight (with pliers) and re-tighten the cable. It should shift now. If it doesn't, the solution is a little time consuming, so i apologize in advance.
First, flip your bike onto the bars and saddle. Now shift into the small chainring and your lowest cassette cog (the largest in number of teeth). Release the cable from the front derailleur and set the adjustment knob for the front derailleur to its center point. You should find it on your down tube. Now adjust the "L" setting on the derailleur while turning the crank so that its stop sets it in a position where it just skims the chain but does not touch it. Now pull the cable taut and re-clamp the cable. Shift into the middle ring and shift the rear derailleur to its highest and lowest gears, making sure the chain does not rub the front derailleur. If it does rub (it will be in either the lowest or highest cog on the cassette), adjust the front derailleur by way of the adjustment knob to clear the rub. Then shift into the big ring and you should have no problem. Set the "H" stop if necessary.
