    Cannot seat into low gear when climbing

    Hi all, this has defeated some of the finest minds today on our bike ride and is something I have wrestled with a good part of the year.

    Brompton gear change problem

I tried to use it this morning but about half way through I noticed that the numbered gears (on the right handlebar) were not changing properly - gear 1 is now gear 2, and gears 2 and 3 are both gear 3 (the gear doesn't change when I move between 2 and...

    Campag ergo levers - sticky gears

    I've been having a problem recently with the rear gears on my Veloce set-up. I find that occasionally the thumb lever will refuse move and change gear. To get it moving again I need to press the lever shifter a bit to un-lock it, then it will carry on be fine. This only ever happens after I've...
