Is the cable sat correctly in the shifter? Is there a cable port(for replacing cable without taking the shifter apart) where you can see it actually moving the cable?

Is there a correct way of seating the cable? what postion should the levers be? As the levers are not moving the cable. Yes its easy to put the cable in. :cry:

had the same thing a while ago , couldnt work it out

what had happened was that the cable end was caught in the groove not in the socket for the cable end , the cam had not quite gone all the way forward and it looked as if it was seated properly but wasn`t ??

Its on the big chainring

Sounds like you tightened up the cable while the gear shifter was still in top gear :?
Undo the cable clamp, shift down into bottom gear, move the mech and chain manually if necessary, pull the cable tight and cinch it back up.

Not routing the cable under the pinch bolt at the mech,rather than over are you- reducing the leverage?? No, cos he said there was no movement on the cable. . .
Rigth then,
-possible brakage inside the sti
- possible cable stop on the trimble pulled INTO the frame (not good. . )
-The outer wasn't seated peoperly at the lever and has just jumped into its socket
-the ratchet has got caught in the lever- you'll need to release tension to release it.

Either way, i think the cable has to cme out themech so you can evaluate the lever alone, independant of all other components. Job for the evening. .
