Desperately seeking set of RSX 7 spd. shifters(10 posts)

Desperately seeking set of RSX 7 spd. shiftersjtolleson

Helping out an exchange student who's RSX-equipped Bianchi was damaged in transport (Rear shifter broken). Bike's a triple.

Lookin' for parts. Shop says no way and wants $200 for a full gruppo swap... even that might be an issue because I don't know if dropouts can handle an 8 spd. switch, and I'd frankly HATE to see her have to get Sora (I'd prefer used RSX).

If we must upgrade, then maybe a total 105 swapout?

Anyone looking to unload some old stuff?

Harris Cycle has new ones, in case you can't find a used one.
Good Luck in finding her one. From your email addy it seems we have something in common, tolerance if nothing else. Ride fast.......

Any of the above will work. I have 8 speed RX100 STI's on my 7 speed rain bike

I know that I could buy something like this (I've been monitoring eBay) but figure if we're helping her cough up the dough for a new set, it would be nice to find one for a triple (ie., go ahead and replace both levers). But thanks.

Question, I did find one eBay link that was an 8-spd. 105 gruppo... would this work

OK, screwed that up. It is eBay item 1023878003; a 105 8 spd. triple unit.

All 8 speed shifters(except Dura Ace) will work with 7 speed.

Don't let this get around, cuz it'll lessen my chances of picking up some stuff at good prices, but...

Airborne is having their semi annual "Garage" sale on November 3rd in Springboro Ohio (they also have private seller swap tables)... If you're in the area, you might find a few great upgrades (though I think you'd be hard pressed to find the RSX stuff)

Again, don't let this get around... you know how this board can be...

We abide.

Remain In Light.

I appreciate that, I really do. But this bike is this student's most prized possession, so we're going to take up a team collection and ensure that she doesn't have to downgrade to bar end or downtube. I think I've spotten some RSX shifters on eBay.
