    New question here. Shifter Adjuster

    Hey guys just a quick shifter question. I have sram x-4 shifters on my rockhopper and the barrel adjuster on the left shifter is busted. Can just the adjuster be replaced or do I need to get a whole new shifter? Thanks.

    The replacement part is available, so look around for one. Often an LBS will scavenge a used one off a damaged shifter if they can't source it.

    The key to solving any problem is to understand and address the underlying cause.

    favorite shop? haha that's a good one, i despise that shop! I only went because it's the nearest Specialized dealer and i needed to get a replacement preload knob for my shock since it snapped off and i wanted it replaced under warranty and not have to drive over an hour to the next shop. For everything else I avoid that shop like the plague lol

    ...ah, Specialized...makes more sense...Consider yourself lucky, though. I've gotta fly an hour and a half to get to my nearest shop...
