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 just bought a TREK bike with SHIMANO shifter/brake combination. The bike may be 10-15 years old (not certain). The shifters move but do not engage the cable. What should I do?


With a bike this old the best thing is too take the bike into your local bike shop and have them give it a once over to look for any potential problems. THIS IS A FREE SERVICE ALL SHOPS OFFER.

The problem specific could be as simple as the cable is very loose and not engaging the cable, or the cable could be so old that it is frozen inside the housing and nothing is happening. It could also be that the cable is broken, the shifter is broken or something other. It is impossible to diagnosis this particular problem with certainty without actually seeing and feeling the issue.

Bottom Line: Take it into a shop and get a mechanic to look at it.

Hi, Just bought a new bike with shimano tiagra gearing. However the gear shifters doesn't seem to work. There is no movement in the cables when I try to shift gears. Do you have any idea for a quick fix or...


You don't mention which shifter(s) malfunction or if you're even pedaling the bike while shifting (I make NO assumptions).

If you operate the inner shift lever (NOT the brake lever) on each side through several clicks that should RELAX any tension in the shifter cables. Then if you pick the bike up and pedal it forward a couple of turns the front shifter should drop the chain the the lowest chainring and the rear derailleur should shift out the the smallest cog.

With the bike suspended (say, hanging from a low tree branch by the tip of the seat) you should be able to turn the cranks and manually pull sideways on either exposed shifter cable where it runs down along the downtube then release it.

This should cycle each respective derailleur through its entire range. If the cables don't travel sufficiently in this manner, the shifters will never make them do it either.

Perhaps you could CALL the Bike Shop and they would talk you through a quick operational check.

Shimano tiagra 9 speed shifters how to change gear


Go to http://techdocs.shimano.com/techdocs/index.jsp

Search in drop down list to go to all tiagra items and identify your particular components. Shimano are good at numbering their parts and you should find the number you seek on the bicycle component. You will usually be able to download an exploded parts diagram and service instructions. The service instructions are prefixed by the letters SI.

Shifting problems/Tiagra STI Flightdeck


It sounds like the limit screws on your derailleur body are out of adjustment. They are usually small phillips head screws on the body of the front and rear derailleur that limit the travel of the derailleur body on the rear so that the chain cannot get shifted into the spokes or off the smallest cog into the frame. On the front they prevent the chain from shifting off the inside or outside cogs. There are good articles under front and rear derailleur adjustments at this site:http://www.parktool.com/repair/byregion.asp?catid=53 I hope this helps.

8speed lx shifter to xt shifter


It depends.. Shifter cables are standard and the same one would work for both LX and XT shifters. If the old cable is full of grime etc, it is a good idea to run new cables - it will give you a smooth easy shift.

I am sure if you check www.shimano.com you will find the manual for your model of shifter. Replacing cables is pretty easy.
