Bike shifting Problems
Ever since I first rode the bike this spring it has been shifting funny. It never had this problem last year at all, but who know it could be just coincidence. Anyway, when I'm riding down the highway or whatever, in 6th gear, I can still shift upwards. It does not give me neutral, it just lets the shifter move up instead of locking me out. It still feels like shifting normally almost, its not just the little play that you always have. It sucks because its hard to tell now when I'm really in 6th gear.
More recently it has been doing it on the other end, like I can shift down past 1st. Its super annoying.
Both of the problems don't happen all the time, just some. Then today I was riding it and I just got stuck in 2nd gear. The shifter would move up like normal but it wouldn't actually pull out of the gear.
I've checked the linkage and stuff and everything seems tight. Anyone have any ideas what this might be?
