Hello all. New to the forum, first post.
I recently bought a used Zoomer, 2008 I was told, for an amazing price here in Canadaland. Knowing what I was getting and what I paid, I realized there would be adjustments and other issues to contend with. I rode the trike yesterday after upgrading the tubes and tires (came with a flat) and quickly realized my front gearing was basically stuck in 2nd. The gripshift moved around; however, nothing was happening. Today I disassembled the shifter and noticed one frayed cable inside the housing. I trimmed it as close to the lead end as possible and put everything back together. Everything is set to low gear (derailleur and shifter) yet when I try to shift up, it clicks toward 2nd then nothing... I mean my hand would need to be a vise to force this shifter ever further. The derailleur moves over all three ring gears manually, but when I try to move it with the shifter, no chance, just stops. It is almost like I can not overcome the spring tension in the derailleur. Everything on board looks to be original, Sora derailleur and SRAM MRX gripshift and the cable is free within the casing
Any ideas? I loved the short ride I had, though I really would like to see just what this baby can do with all 24 gears.
