I have a 2009 Specialized Allez Sport C2. It came with shimano 105 components all around. the left hand (front) shifter recently broke, and will no longer hold a position. I can reach down and grasp the shifter cable and pull it, and the derailleur will move, so it is definitely the shifter. As i understand it, this is a common problem for that vintage of shimano 105's. I'm trying to figure out how to replace the brifters with compatible components, so I won't have to replace the whole groupset.
new 105 components are extremely expensive, and are set up for an 11 speed rear. What are my options to just replace the brifters?
