Old Shimano Mountain Bike shifter replacement

everybody so this is a bike I was
working on the other day it’s an older
mountain bikes got that 200 GS
components all 7-speed kind of the
earlier versions of the rapid-fire yeah
you know as with the case with a lot of
these common issue is the little pause
there get all gummed up just from age
and whatever and they don’t function
anymore
so I’ll probably do a little video
reviving that actual shifter but in
meantime the customer just wanted to go
with the more modern version so yeah
this one’s got the this you know the
newer style trigger shifters got the
little optical gear display you know so
it’s got the the newer style so you hit
you know the big button with your thumb
the smaller button with your forefinger
there it’s got the little cap on the
bottom so they’re pretty easy to service
as well but it comes with the shifter
the cable and then the little end cap
there and I went ahead and just put new
housings on it as well on this one it’s
moving the grip here is your first step
you know usually sometimes use
compressed air and just another method
and I just shot a little isopropyl
alcohol in there and stuck a pic
underneath there just kind of let that
let the alcohol get in there and in
there it’s pretty easy just to uh work
it right on off so get the grip off and
then these older style brake levers its
gots a little bolt that anchors it in
place there inside kind of like an older
road bike lever so I went ahead and just
pop the breaks loose here to give a give
myself a little bit extra room to get a
screwdriver in there
went ahead and pulled the cable out but
I’ll show how to attach that back in
this particular level level lever here
in just a bit anyway just loosen up that
bolt there and this thing will just
slide right off from there back off the
cable off the anchor bolt there on the
rear derailleur and just connect all
that bolt there so the new one it’s
gonna basically go on the same way it’s
got a little 5 millimeter bolt there
that you know it’s I noticed this piece
kind of sticks out and the old lever
kind of tucks up underneath it but you
can see it’s a lot shorter the metal
it’s steel lever versus the aluminum one
on the new style so I just wanna cut
that off so it would mount up nice and
flush the the actual lever there’s a
little bit of interference but I was
able to match it up there where it
worked out pretty well yeah this isn’t a
compressed-air version take them on pull
them off whatever right here it’s
there’s no slot on me the actual lever
housing body so you just have to slip it
slip the head through there and then up
over that little groove brake lever
itself so that’s the just cinching it
back down with screwdriver line it up
with the other one and then here I’m
just connecting the cable the adjusting
barrel is on the cable itself and it
just kind of butts up to the end of the
housing but you just want to pull the
end of the cable out the head and slip
it through there and slip it up into the
lever so that’s basically how it came
out you know always want to leave
yourself room to for the smaller button
there to make all this travel and then
you don’t want to bind up the little
optical deer here display if you jam
that in there
work correctly so he’s gonna leave just
a little bit of room in there with that
little thing functions just testing it
out here it’s working fine so hook up my
cables and it’s basically it you know
shifted all the way down when you’re
hooking it up cable in the or the
derailleur and the smallest cog is
pretty straightforward fine-tune your
tension there so it’s kind of testing it
out here and working great so yeah
that’s one option I’ll do another video
here at some point soon try to revive
that other shifter just to show how to
do that but anyways thanks for watching
and we will see you back here soon

Bicycle Shifter Review

A bike gear shift knob is a small part used to manipulate the gear shifting mechanisms of your bike. In most cases, they work either an internal or a detachable derailleur mechanism. When the button or knob is depressed, it allows you to shift from one gear to another, regardless of whether you are in the low gear or the high gear. They can also be used in reverse, for instance, when you need to shift from the front wheel to the back wheel. The shift knob usually has a small spring that helps keep it in place.

Some bike electronic shifters allow you to change gears without pressing any pedals. Most of them have a small electronic button on the right side of it. The buttons can be used to switch gears, but they sometimes have a small red light to indicate that they are engaged.

The big advantage of the electronic bike shifters is that they provide better switching. However, there is one big disadvantage: you cannot shift gears while your bike is on the ground, and this is the reason why most people use the conventional shifters. The big advantage of the manual shifters is that they allow you to switch gears while riding on the road smoothly and easily.

Switching between gears is easy with the road bike shifters. All you have to do is to shift by turning the shifters slowly. Electronic shifters require that you use both hands to switch; it is difficult to shift without using both hands. Mechanical shifters, however, are easier to switch between gears. If you are a first-time user of the road bikes’ derailleurs, you should start with the mechanical shutters.

Other than changing gears, the bike shifters have other uses. You can use the non-shifting mechanisms to switch between different gear combinations. For instance, the right gear shifting mechanism can be used when you are going up a hill. In this mechanism, the lever on the right side of the bike has two links and these links can engage with one another when the bike is moving downhill. There is also another type called the reverse gear shifting mechanism which only works in reverse.

To change gears using the shifters, you should first find the right or the left side. When you are sitting on the saddle, you should look at the lever and push it in one direction. When you are already on the ground, you should pull the lever in the opposite direction. These are the basic functions of the shifters in a road bike.
