WTB - 7 speed Shimano Rapidfire shifter

Postby bish » Mon Nov 03, 2008 3:52 pm

Wanted: Shimano 7 speed rapidfire shifter (LX higher would be nice but I'll take whatever). Needed to resurrect my 95 DBR mountain bike as a commuter.

Location: I'm in Perth but am happy to pay for postage.

PM me with what you have - thanks!

Are you having trouble getting the upshift button to engage? I had that exact problem with my early 90's MTB with the same groupset but managed to fix it by shooting some light lube into the mechanism. They are known to get "sticky".

Nice tip but unfortunately won't help in this case.

I want to get rid of the horrible SRAM grip shift that I have on there currently.

Thanks! :)

Just wondering, how many different standards of 7 speed indexed shifters are there for Shimano? For the said RapidFire LX system, what modern/later day 7 speed shifters are compatible with it?
