comment Disassembling Shimano integrated gear shifters (brifters)
If I remember correctly, the spring was bent in half, so I straightened it out and put it back in. It's not perfect but it still works three years later. I'm not sure of the size, but maybe you could use one from a ballpoint pen?

Next upgrade will be a new car + roof rack.

That's a valid workaround, although doing that before every ride would be pretty annoying.

That's the thing, the way bikes attach to this rack, seat of one bike will block handle bars of the other, no matter how low the seat.

comment Problems with gears after re-attaching front chainring
Lawndartcatcher, this is exactly what I've ended up doing. I had a big allen wrench so that did the job. Good answer.

In this case it wouldn't have worked as it was a mechanical issue, but I think it's a good idea and next time I'll try soaking it before I go striping it apart.

The bottom bracket was creaking, so I took off the cranks and tightened it. The creaking noise seems to be sorted, so hopefully I can go back to cycling when I get the gears fixed.

I wasn't allowed to add a photo because of my low rep, so I've put it up on google docs, let me know if you are able to view it: link
