For the rear, a 9 speed Sora brifter will be fine -- 9 speed cable pull is the same between Shimano road and mountain. For the front, the bike has a Shimano Altus front derailleur. You'll need to swap a road triple front derailleur for that (make sure to check the spec sheet to ensure your crankset's chainring sizes are within spec (not a problem) and the ...

So you might be about two links short, or you could move the wheel forward. The purpose of the adjusters is to make it easy to position the wheel. The tension on the quick release skewer is what actually keeps the wheel in place. From what you describe it sounds like the skewer wasn't generating enough tension. Try this: Locate the wheel where you want it ...

I'd call it a thumb shiifter. Guess its for the front derailleur, and on a bike that old its probably not indexed, which makes this easier. Firstly is the gear wire loose? Check them down on the frame and see if they're slack. If so, the wire has snapped or the end has come off inside the shifter. If you can't physically move the shifter then it could ...

Microshift is a brand. They are Taiwan base. Most of the twist shifter operates in similar manner as you described. They are for trimming as Batman said. But in fact it is made from the same machine and parts to keep the cost down. It is all about how to set up the front derailleur in your system, and find a spot for each appropriate gearing. i.e. avoid ...

The problem is that you have the cable incorrectly routed under the pinch bolt / washer. You need to route the cable down the same "side" of the pinch bolt, but the washer needs to turn 90 degrees clockwise, so that one "claw" sits in the hole in the derailleur body, one "claw" sits outside the derailleur body next to the free end of the cable and the cable ...

Follow the cable from the shifter down to the front derailleur. At the derailleur the cable housing will end and the inner cable will continue to a screw on the derailleur that clamps the cable, take a moment to look at derailleur and find the lever that the screw is on and push it. That should move the cage of the derailleur (the part that shifts the ...

I think it's the trimming function on STI shifter as you have a Tiagra shifter set (at least in the UK) You can adjust the front derailleur's adjusting barrel and move the derailleur a little bit to Low, so that it wouldn't rub on the chain when it's at trim level. Then you adjust the Low limit screw to make sure it wouldn't swing the chain off the small ...

I work in a volume dealership bike shop. One of the top in the country. I rarely, if ever, have seen this problem. The cable should not be slack when in low gear. Take it to your LBS.
