I'm talking about shifting to the smaller gears after you've climbed the hill.

Bet the cable may be sticking. Something is preventing it from doing what it naturally should do.

Sounds to me like whatever lube is inside the housing is the problem. You're capable of changing cables and housings, certainly.

But yes, I'm also asking how is it they could only manage one million masks? Publicity stunt crosses my mind, but that's just ol' cynical me.

"What's that - you're giving me this beautiful horse! Well, let's take a look at those teeth!" :rolleyes:

a) Marbury hasn't done anything yet except announce his intent. If he gets it done, good on him.
b) no matter the intention, that's *really* cynical to think, "oh, they only provided a million masks to health care professionals that'll be helping others that are dying."
c) big numbers get thrown around all the time, so we tend to lose our grasp on the magnitude. A million. That's a thousand... a thousand time over. That's a lot. A lot, a lot. But they didn't purchase 1 million. They purchased 1.7 million - 1.4 are allotted to MA, and 300,000 are being sent to NY. Also, it's a passenger plane - the first shipment was 1.2 million and they need to go back for the rest.

Ball sports rivalries are good, dumb fun, but shouldn't be confused with the real world.

Hopefully a set price was stated up front and no bidding took place.

When mine was doing something similar cleaning it wd40 fixed the problem. I had an issue on cold days it was shifting weird or not shifting at all.

Gotcha. I guess just try flushing it a few more times and cycle it a lot. I think that a select few people have successfully overhauled Shimano STI stuff, but they are few and far between,. They really don't like going back together after being taken apart, unlike Campagnolo Ergopower levers.

eBay has quite a few in the $70-$100 range. Seems like the path of least resistance if flushing doesn't work. You should be able to swap one out without even needing to remove bar tape.

However:

As a regular Addiction poster, I am required by Addiction bylaws to recommend you look into the Cervelo closeouts on excelsports.com and pick out the R series of your choice.

Um.

Some things just don't need to be said, they're just a given. Having a firm grasp of the obvious doesn't really set you apart.

WhyFi, I’m not wasting my time arguing over the Internet. Never have, never will. You can see what you want to see, believe what you want to believe and say what you want to say, and I’ll do the same. Adios.

You've never had qualms about arguing - you were just arguing with LAJ. You just don't like it when people argue back and you're on shaky ground. Adios, indeed.

For those having problems, check the multi-quote box for every post *except* the last one that you'd like to quote - you simply hit the "quote" on that one and you should be good to go.

That's what I do. No dice.

And to be clear, when you say shifting to smaller gears, you're talking about the shifter releasing cable instead of pulling, right?

It is possible the shifters just need to be cleaned up. I've "fixed" quite a few STI shifters by chucking them in a parts washer and relubing them. Or, a quick hit with some spray cleaner/lube like One-Step.

One of these years Iíll go up to Boulder on a trip and come back with something. Maybe a P3-X.

When was the last time you put new cable and housing on the bike?

You must be new here.*

Stage 3 (Concrete Operations, IIRC), at least.

I wonder if the multi-quote issue is browser-related; will investigate later.

The Goggle does odd things for me.

I venture out to pick up a few items because I don’t want to shop over the weekend. My Costco has been playing fast and loose with their hours; one never knows for sure when they are opening or closing and their local website is totally wrong. Said they were closing at 8:30 and they actually closed at 6:30 last night. Supposed to open at 9:00 and actual time this morning is 10:00. When I got there at 9:15, there were many people sitting in cars as confused as myself.

Tooled over to Aldis and probably 40% were wearing masks. I just picked up a couple things and bolted for home.

Will try again on Monday. :(

I have tried multi-quote in IE 11 and Edge. Does not work in either.

Frankly, weekends don't seem to matter these days - it's all the same. I went to Costco last Saturday at lunch time, something that I would normally avoid, 'cause it's usually a zoo, and it wasn't busy at all. And while I can't help you with the store hours being wonky, I stand by my earlier recommendation - check google maps for live busyness levels before leaving the house.

On the sailing site I used to frequent, "Friday" was code for NSFW.
