    alfine 11 speed shifter

    I have the 11 speed hub with the sl-s700 rapid fire shifter.
    Has anyone had any problems with the shifter shifting to lower gears.
    Sometimes mine requires a full push on the lever to shift. If I try to shift only one gear, it will not shift. This is a random occurrence. If I repeat it a few times, It gets it right.
    Shifting to higher gears is ALWAYS perfect, only shifting to lower gears. I have replaced the cable twice, thinking that could be the problem. I have even adjusted the cable so the indicator is off center. Tried it in both directions. None of this seems to help.

    HELP !!!

    Sounds like the cable housing could be the problem. Maybe the curves of the housing arenīt "wide" enough and the cable canīt slide so easily to shift down? Just a thought.

    That would also be my first guess. Cable friction problem. Kink somewhere. Sometimes the housing can look fine but a kink on the inner cable will increase friction a lot.
