So I have a winter bike - a nice steel number - with a mix of Apex-Rival-Force 10 speed parts (cranks and fd are new, the rest is/was in very good well kept condish). Everything worked awesome till today. I left the house with 20 speeds, came back with 2. Turns out my right sram lever’s innards broke or fell apart, so when I tried to switch gears, say from 14 to 15, the lever clicked but gears didn’t change. It got worse: by the end of the ride I had a 34x15 or 50x15. I stopped at my lbs and they handed me a very close to NOS right lever. Got home, replaced the lever and all’s good.
BUT IT ISN’T.
I asked if they rebuild 10 speed levers; they don’t. So my question is:
Anyone out there rebuilds 10 speed sram levers? I think the ratchet broke, am not sure exactly what happened so I’d like to know if anyone here rebuilds or knows of folks who rebuild 10 speed levers. I know the levers have far fewer moving parts than Campy, so it shouldn’t be a stretch. My other bike is a modern carbon beauty with wireless etap, so no need to ask me to ride electronic stuff - I want my mechanical parts working well. I never heard or seen sram levers breaking, outside of accidents/crashes.
If anyone out there could point me in the right direction, it’d be great.
Thanks much and happy New Year,
