I didn't even realise it, but I had been using the double shift Rapidfire feature on shimano's mtb sti's to move the chain only once up the cassette. Thats two clicks for one change. Its only when I got fed up with having to 'upshift' once to bring it to proper alignment with the desired gear, I decided to tinker.
That's when I spent about an hour trying to get it to shift properly with the barrel adjuster and it just wouldn't.
After thinking about it, it is clear that the right shifter only pulls enough cable on the smalest one or two cogs. I had naturally learnt to use two lever clicks.
Some things: -I have got a new cable that I bent a few places when I installed it, and ok outers. As the upshifting is fine, im ruling that out. -its all 7 speed, from experience right hand shifters always break down. Specifically, m095 xt sti, lx m560 rd, new hg41 cassette/chain. I have changed the rd with identical results.
Service the shifter or do I need to set the cable up in a specific order?
