SRAM SX4 replacement grip shifters

My LBS replaced my gummed up SRAM SX4 grip shifters with SRAM Centera but they don't shift as well as the old ones. I think the new ones are 1:2 and the old ones 1:1. Will go back to LBS but want to know more about the problem or issue. Thanks!

SOURCE: replacing Attack's rear derailleur cable

Stop everything! Do not take the shifter apart! Go to the rear derailleur and look where the cable is attached. There is a bolt with an allen key head, it is an 8mm. Losen off the bolt. REFER TO PARKTOOL.COM

Schwinn Sidwinder gears need adjusting. The one with 3 gears doesn't stay where I try to set it.

Keeping a derailleur in a given gear is the shifter's job. If the shift lever/mechanism doesn't click and stay where you place it, something is wrong internally. It will need to be replaced if, for example, a SRAM MRX grip slid away and let the guts fall out.

Whatever your particular dilemma, look for a friendly local bicycle shop to see what they can do for you. I replaced the entire MRX shifter set for a friend using an upgraded and better designed Shimano setup for under $25 and my own labor. But then, I'm an old hand at working on bikes.

I have just bought a 1995 Specialized Hardrock GSX. It comes with a Sram Grip Shift MRX 100. I want to replace the handlebar grips, but am confused with so many offerings. Please provide me with product...

As anything that contacts your hands and controls the shifting is a personal preference I would advise you to find a real bike shop and discuss it with them. You can also look at and manipulate other brands and models before committing.

I have a Campy 10 Speed Shifter, running with SRAM S60 wheels, it causes some problems when upshifting

If you are running a SRAM or Shimano Cassette, then the spacing will be ever so slightly off. If you want to have precise clean shifting then you need to either replace the cassette body with a Campy one and replace the cassette with campy or get a 10-speed conversion cassette such as those from American Classic. Campy spacing on a shimano/ Sram spline.

The wheels in and of themselves should not make any difference.

Another trick for perfect shifting, make sure that your rear derailleur and shifter match - Campy to campy, Sram to Sram as examples.

What kind of components do I need?

Most bikes have Shimano shifters & deraillers; SRAM is the other main vendor. Shimano makes a wide range; the following table attempts to describe these and presents my best guess of where the SRAM line fits in: Model Quality SRAM Equivalent?
SIS, Tourney (or just says Shimano) Mainly designed for riding around the neighborhood
Altus Sufficient for paved or very easy trails; avoid hills 3.0
Acera Slightly better, but won't shift well under stress; capable for easy casual riding 4.0
Alivio Minimal capable for recreational riding; will handle some hard riding 5.0
STX / Deore Entry-level components for hard riding; tough & reliable 7.0
LX The minimum standard for hard riding. Reliable & responsive 9.0
XT More responsive than LX, but still reasonable tough 9.0SL
XTR Light, responsive racing components; tend to be quite expensive; often sacrifices toughness for responsiveness X.0

Look for a component set that fits your expected riding style.

Note:The numbered SRAM components aren't compatible with Shimano components. SRAM does make grip-shifters that are Shimano-compatible.

There are many other manufacturers that specialize in various components (Avid, Cane Creek, Race Face, Hope) and make great ones. Ask the LBS personnel for a comparison if you see a brand you don't know. Also, you can use the same test as forks above: if its not sold separately, its probably more questionable. If you're getting a full-suspension bike, make sure you get a good rear shock as well (it'll probably be something other than SRAM or Shimano).
