Rated 4 out of 5 by watanabe Noise by the shifter or this front mech ?
I'm not quite sure about this and just suppose it's probably the shifter's
reason (ST-3500), but it makes terribly big noise when it changes to the
inner ring. It’s something like “whack!” or “crack!” and makes you think
as if it got broken. The lever feels quite hard to press when shifting down,
although there is not any problem otherwise. It may get better with another
shifter, but I just don’t know.
It shouldn’t be a problem if you don’t mind and understand “Well, this is the
way it is, isn’t it ?”, as it does work as it should.
