What would you say is good? Shimano 105, Tiagra? Sram? Something that won't break the bank lolWell, if its under warranty then put in a claim, but you will wait and wait. Then buy a new unit and fit that. When/if Madison agree your claim then you will have a spare for next time. But...Madison do not always agree with you and can reject your claim purely because they feel like it. And you have no redress. (Personal experience here!)
If out of warranty then you will just have to take it on the chin. There are many stories doing the rounds of LH shifters going wrong. Trouble there is no real alternative other than a complete change of system and that will cost more than a single shifter.
I've heard reports of all Shimano bar Dura Ace. I've had an Ultegra go, and I've heard other Ultegras and 105 reports. Seems to be all across the board on LH shifters. Some are OK but it is very much pot luck.Is it only the claris groupset that has this shifter issues or others have it too? As well as Tiagra.
It's not a huge problem, I think we're in danger of overstating it here. I've had just the one shifter go ping in all my life, just happened to be a Shimano Ultegra. I've got one Ultegra equipped bike, one 105, and one Sora and they're all reliable other than that one snap.Is it only the claris groupset that has this shifter issues or others have it too? As well as Tiagra.
