Inside of the shifter?

It downshifts all gears somewhat fine except for that one gear, then once it gets past that it downshifts clean again. It's almost like there's nothing - no tension, not...

Rear derailluer shifter, downshifting issues.

It's a Cannondale R600 CAAD4, running a Shimano 105 9-speed rear cassette.

Crazy thing is my shifter seems out of sync. It upshifts perfectly, but there's one gear that when I go to downshift...

I've got a pair of clipless shoes coming in the mail. I do see the potential in them, and in my opinion it forces you to fit yourself to the bike better since you'll be pinned in that position the...

Lol true.

But again, think of the positive: It's not a problem because at least the OP will be the new tech guinea pig. His losses could be your savings :lol:

Personally, I find it kinda funny. You don't have to agree with everything he posted. And some of his points are sound.

Cannondale r600 caad4

Are these bikes still somewhat competitive? I know the rider makes the difference. Iíve come across one I can get in relatively decent shape for $300. It has the Shimano 105 gear.

Also, I canít...

Help fitting to a bike that's too big.

I'm convinced that my bike is too big of a frame, and didn't realize this since I got it used when I was brand new to road cycling. I've always feel like I have too much of my upper body weight...

Yeah I know you're right.

My current rig - my starter bike - as it turns out is an extra large frame (23.5" from crank center to seat tube outlet). It's got me worn out. I have the seat jammed all...

Opportunity to buy a time trial bike

Just came across a decent deal on a QR CD0.1 Shift Series. While only a 49cm size, it's almost pristine. Price tag on it is $500. I'm 5'8, and figured I could move the seat back some and make myself...
