Not quite the first proper outing I was hoping for.

Took a bit of a tumble and managed to somehow sheer my right shifter.

Now in the market for new M900 shifters if anyone has one.

A few years ago I took pictures of the stripdown and reassembly of Shimano Rapid Fire Plus shifters, in case I ever needed to disassemble, clean, and regrease them again. There's quite a lot of parts, and once it's in pieces it's not very easy to get all the springs and other parts back in the right place so that it works as intended. I'd guess that some of the parts are universal to some or all of the models.

Re:

You'd think, they would be but they changed a but in this early stage, especially as this is 8sp and then they tweaked them again for XT/DX. Which is a bit annoying.

With help from the superstar Captaincowley managed to source an original seatpost frame badge.

Bit of magic from my red and black sharpies and sealed it attached to the frame.
Really pleased with some icing to the cake.

Managed by luck to source some XTR cantis with titanium fittings.
They look sweet I think

I think 🤔 you should sell it.. get yourself another project.. I'm happy to have it off you.. to help you to stay well and occupied. 😉
I don't think putting decals on a bike is that fulfilling.. lol.

LOL. You can prise it from my dead fingers if you like but join the queue early to avoid disappointment.
Thanks for the kind words. Much appreciated.
Captaincowley was an absolute super star helping me with the Marin badge and it gave me an absolute buzz to get that sorted.
Don’t know it until you’ve tried it. It’s the finer details that make the difference.
Good luck.
