That works too. I don't bother with a screwdriver anymore.

Jamming a tiny torx bit in, maybe?

My trick with these little buggers when they're stubborn is after dousing in WD40, to tightly wrap the allen key in a layer or two of aluminium foil, twisted off at the end. Works about 95% of the time.

You should know that tagging/mentioning does not notify the person if you use the dropdown menu. Just keep typing past your input so it leaves the @-sign in place. This is counter-intuitive and inconvenient, i.e. par for the course for this system. So I'll take him here: @QuangVuong.

Very Handy Thread and Expertise from QV

Well I've dug out a pair of fine looking 600 Shifters - there's an invite to the 2016 Strada Bianche in the box so I've had them a while(!) Completely gummed up so I'll have a crack using the QV Guide!
