I just started riding my bike again after a few years. A friend finaly, after much bugging from me, got one so we could ride. After a couple rides the rear derailer started acting up(more than usual, it was pretty out of wack after sitting around and collecting dust and a little rust). I spent an hour+ this morning getting it all adjusted, and it still won't downshift.
The problem is when I try to downshift it is physicaly impossible for me to turn the grip shift down. Its like the cable is stuck, but if I just nudge the derailer in the right direction the shifter smoothly moves to the next click, and the chain smoothly moves to the next gear.
I just got back from my local bike shop, and their mechanic is on vacation, so any help would be greatly appreciated!
