Enzo Twist Shifter Instructions?

I have a 26'' Alpine Mountain bike with Enzo Twist Shifters. One shifter has numbers while the other has dots. I did not receive riding instructions or an owner's manual. Can anyone provide shifting information. Thanks.

SOURCE: GRIP SHIFTERS WILL NOT TWIST WHILE TRYING TO SHIFT

This is likely because either a) the cable leading from the shifter to the part you are pulling is seized or b) the shifter itself is seized or c) both are seized. You would have to undo the cable from the rear deraileur, pull the inside cable out from the casing from top to bottom. Check it and see if it is rusted or full of crud. Give it a cleaning and spray some light lube down the outer (black) cables, then reinsert the cable. While the cable is undone, it wouldn't hurt to see if you can twist the grip shifters. If they are still tight, then get some lube in the grip shift. Also make sure the rubber grips are not too tight against the shifter. Hope that helps...

Rear derailler will not click and hold shifted gear


Sounds like the internal spring that indexes the shifter is either broken or missing. I believe these bikes came with twist shifters. Those springs are hard to find nowadays and it's just as inexpensive to replace. Your local bicycle shop should be able to find a suitable replacement shifter for your bicycle.

Older sorento needs new hand shifters


chances are good that they are no longer manufactured if it is more than 10 years old. Best advice is to take it to your local bike shop and see if they have the parts, or can order them and they can make sure they are compatible with the rest of the drive train (not all shifters are created equal)

side note: sometimes old shifters are not actually broken and just need a good cleaning and oil flush. They have grease inside which gets old and stiff and can cause the shifter not to "ratchet" properly between gears. I always try flushing them out with WD40 (this oil is great for cleaning and bad for chains cuz it has solvents in it). Often this will bring an old shifter back to life.

I have a broken derailer cable on an old huffy backwater bike where can I get a new one?


You can buy one from most neighbourhood bike repair shops. This should be a pretty standard item for them.

I have an old 12 speed racing bike with the shifters on the frame.i wish to either have thumb shifters on the handle bars or end bar shifters but i cant find either,any suggestions please


You haven't looked hard enough. eBay has everything. Unless you have a Campi drivetrain, go with Shimano or Suntour if you can find them.

But they're 'spensive.

I recently acquired an old '84 Cannondale road bike (before they had model numbers) that had all original Suntour 2x6 with downtube shifters on it. Now it's a full Campi-Ergo-equipped 2x9 with FSA compact carbon crank, aero-bar mountain climbing road rocket.

The gears will not change at all. It seems like the part that you twist to change gears is seized on both sides. This is causing the bike to ride very slow.


Actually, it's causing you to have no gearing options. If you were Lance Armstrong the bike would move fast ;0) even with a flat tire.

Crimped, corroded shifter cables can prevent accurate shifting. I'm thinking you need a bike mechanic to look at it.

After it's all fixed you might want to view some resources concerning shifting, braking and general riding skills. It's all out there.

My Shimano Deore DX mountain bike up / down shifter is malfunctioning. Any help will be appreciated.


Maybe start here and if you can't figure it out, take it to a Bike Shop. Ther's only so much useful mechanical advice one can remotely lend with no details.
