Question about Shimano 24 Speed Road Racing Bike Bicycle Modell Rs888

Open Question

Shimano ultegra ST6600 right shifter, the rear derailer cable broke off in the shifter and I cant get the internal rotating a part that holds the cable end to rotate back to the correct position so I can replace the cable, the shifting when operating the lever only clicks around three times, it seems like a release has to be activated to allow it to carry on moving around to the normal fully unloaded position.

You may have broken your derailleur cable. Your cable securing bolt on your front derailleur might have worked loose just enough for the cable to get some slack in it so that your derailleur isn't moving. Try completely loosening the cable bolt at your front derailleur. Pull on the cable and click the control to downshift to the inside crank gear . That should remove all the slack from the cable. Worse case scenario is when you pull on the cable it will completely pull out and it has broken at the shifter. You will have to replace it with a new one. If it isn't broken and you can still shift with the cable make sure your limit screw is properly adjusted for the inside crank ring and then pull all the slack out of the cable with the shifter shifted to that gear. Tighten the bolt that holds the cable in place and try the shifter again. It should now shift normally. If it doesn't you will have to take the bike in to have the shifter repaired. These shifters are not easy to repair unless you have the tools, parts and experience. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: How do I replace rear shifter cable in shifter

ok this is a little hard to explain in words but the important thing is to make sure the chain is on the biggest cog, pull the cable through the deralier tight and fasten. don't pull it too tight however. you may need to fine tune using the h/l screws but if it was in tune before then it shouldn't need too much adjustment.

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.

Last season Shimano and several mail order houses said 'no problem' to using my existing Ultegra 6600 brifters with a 6700 SS rear derailleur (which would allow using the 11-28 cassette) Now...


The real question here is - are you having a problem and how can it be fixed?

Even full gruppos can cause users to ask us for adjustment advice.

OTOH, theoretically incompatible parts like Campi shifters and Shimano derailleurs can be made to work. I have several such pairings that work flawlessly. But then, I'm running 9-speed.

The thinner you go with cassette cogs the finer and less fault-tolerant everything has to work together.

As is attested to here: http://www.bikeforums.net/archive/index.php/t-623547.html

"AFAIK, there is no change to the RD's actuation ratio, so it should work."

I have an Ultegra RD6600 and CS5600 (12/25T) on my new Look bike. I'd like to put a CS6700 11/28T on it for better gearing for the steep climbs around here. Apparently the CS6700 11/28T required the...


Derailleurs -

The RD6600 will only handle a 27T gear so no to 11/28.
The RD6700 will handle the 28T gear so yes to 11/28

Shiftlever -

The ST6600 will work fine with the RD6700.
The ST7900 should only be used with other 7900 products (Dura-ace for Dura-ace) it will work but not as nice.

There is no need to change your shiftlevers.

The ST7900 is almost fully compatible, in that any Shimano Derailleur will work with any Shimano Shift lever, However the ST7900 has a slightly different shifting pattern and the shift levers should only be used with other 7900 products to get the best performance.

Side note - If you are using standard cranks now, you could keep your shifting in tact and change your cranks to compacts and get lower gear ratios than moving to the 28T for a similar price to Rear derailleur/ cassette and chain plus labor. This is a common change in my shop.

Hi Everyone! I have a Shimano 5603 Hollowtech 2 triple chainring.......(10 Speed) I want to add a Utlegra 6600 front derailleur and Ultegra 6600 rear derailleur. Also 10 speed cassette, Ultegra...


No -

If you are going to use the front triple crankset, then you need to use the 6603 components. These are for Triple set-ups.

If you intend to keep your bike a triple, then everything in the drivetrain must be the triple designation, hence the XX03.

If you want to change the crankset to a compact, then you can use the 6600 (double) equipment, but you will need to change the left (front shifter) to a double as well. The compact crankset, will give you virtually the same range as the triple and be much lighter and shift better.

The cassette: You can use any 10 spd cassette from Shimano or SRAM as long as the rear cog is no larger than 27. if you want to use a larger cog like a 28, then you will have to use the 6700 group, assuming yoiu want to stay with shimano ultegra.

Final Note: Since you are chainging everything, you may want to consider the SRAM Apex group, this gives you more gear ratio than the Ultegra, is slightly less expensive and around the same weight. Great alternative to Triple bikes.

Parts you will need to convert:
Rear Derailleur
Front Derailleur (if changing to compact double or Apex)
Chain
Shifter set (if Apex)
Crankset (if Apex or compact shimano)
Bottom Bracket (if Apex)

The biggest thing is that Shifters and rear derailleur must be from the same company (shimano, SRAM, etc.) after that just make sure that yoiu use 10spd with 10spd, 9 with 9, and so on. Everything else can mix and match.

With Shimano 6603 Group can you use Shimano 5703 shifters, or even triple Tiagra shifters?? Thanks for the reply


The answer is yes and no.

The 5703 shifters will work both derailleurs and match the 6603 group as they are both 10spd.

The Tiagra will not work because it is 9spd, it will functionally shift the derailluer but you will not be able to line up the gearing.

The rear shifter needs to match the number of gears on the back (cassette) in the case of the 6603 group that is 10spd, so you can use any 10spd rear shifter from shimano. The Tiagra is either an 8spd or 9spd depending on the model and will not work with the cassette. You can use a 6603 rear derailleur with a Tiagra group, as long as the shifter and cassette are both the same.

I can tell you by my own experience that the click at every rotation is because the bearings on the BB, I had the same in my bicycle and after install a new crankset and BB it went away. I installed a Shimano Deore Hollowtech II and it works nicely and no noise.

Left bar end shifter does not hold on big chain wheel. The shifter turns down during riding.


You may just have too much cable stretch. Try this out: shift to the small chain ring and release the shifter cable at the derailleur. Pull the cable really tight and reattach it.

i hope this helps
