Front or rear? Is the cable not in the shifter?
If the cable is not in the shifter, there will be a screw in the shifter (made of plastic, usually black) facing outward. You open this and shift the shifter into the highest gear, then slip the cable through and out the side that accepts the cable sleeve. Then you run it through the sleeve and to its appropriate derailleur (left hand=front, right hand=rear).

What is a derailler

A derailleur is a device that assists in shifting the gears and moving the chain from one chain ring to the next. This is generally achieved by the use of a cable and a shift lever that is attached to the handle bars.

My shimano ultegra left shifter is super stiff/hard to push in; what is going on?

Try flushing out the shifter(s) with WD-40, use plenty. The next step will be replacing the shift cables and cable housings.
  • Take the bicycle in an area free of cars and obstacles, such as an open parking lot. Concentration is required when learning to use Ultegra shifters or any other type of bicycle shifter.
  • 2 Mount the bicycle and rest both hands on the proper Ultegra hand control. The left-hand control operates the front derailleur. The right-hand control operates the rear derailleur.
  • 3 Start pedaling, smoothly and evenly. While pedaling is crucial to propelling the bicycle forward, it is also necessary when shifting the derailleur. Pedaling forces the chain to rotate. The chain must rotate before it can transfer to another gear.
  • 4 Push the outside right Shimano Ultegra lever in toward the bicycle. The rear derailleur will shift the chain to a smaller rear gear.
  • 5 Push the inside right Shimano Ultegra lever in toward the bicycle. The rear derailleur will shift the chain to a larger rear gear.
Rear Ultegra Derailleur Control
  • 1 Push the outside left Shimano Ultegra lever in toward the bicycle. The front derailleur will shift the chain to larger front gear.
  • 2 Push the inside left Shimano Ultegra lever in toward the bicycle. The front derailleur will shift the chain to a smaller front gear.
  • 3 Use the front and rear Ultregra hand controls interchangeably. For small changes in gearing, using the rear control. For larger changes, choose the front control. A smaller gear causes the bicycle to travel a shorter distance per pedal stroke but also requires less energy to use. A larger gear requires greater effort but in turn causes the bicycle to travel farther per pedal stroke.

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.

The 6 speed revoshift gear wiring is in need of repair and we aquired the bike with no owners mannual. can ya point me it the right direction? Thank ya. jen

One of these should get you going... lists a lot of Revo Shifters will describe some of the techniques and tools required (they sell tools).

Since you'll need to go to a bike shop to buy the right shifter and brake cables anyway you should have them show you some of the fine points and ask about the special tools (cable cutter, for example) required. You may find that unless you intend to become a regular self-service bicycle mechanic the cost of equipping for that is prohibitively expensive and the occasional paid repair or tune-up would be worthwhile. In fact, a tune-up would address your problem and others of which you may be unaware.

Shimano 70gs rear derailleur won't shift. The thumb levers move but don't engage. Can I fix it or will it have to be replaced.

I just had the same problem with my wife's old bike. After removing the cover (as explained in answer #2), I saw that the pawl (the part that engages the ratchet)was stuck in the open position because the grease had dried up. A shot of pbblaster (or WD40) freed it up and everything is now working fine.
