Question about Shimano 105 Triple Braze On Front Derailleur
Hi, I was riding this weekend and when i got to a steep hill i attempted to shift down from my large ring at the front, but this failed.
When i am pressing the inside lever to shift down the is no click anymore.
I have detached the cable from the derailleur to see if loosening it would help, but this has not made a difference.
Anyone else had this problem?
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
