I took a tumble and bent the left side of my shift housing. It's almost imperceptible but given it's my bike I noticed it off the bat.

I'm assuming there's an easy fix, but it isn't apparent to me. Can someone take pity on me and help me out?

BQG next time. And get a better description of WTF is wrong.

It's the shifter right? The cable housing looks fine.

The problem is just that it's pointed inward? Try to push it back with your hand, it's held on by a metal clamp around the handlebar and the crash just slid it around a little. If it won't go on its own, there'll be a bolt to loosen it under the rubber of the shifter somewhere. Peel it back and look for it. Even if you can push it back without the bolt it might be good to find it anyway and check that it's tight.

I'm going to bump this thread for the next year because generals control freak can't keep his fucking mouth shut

Not the OP, just someone pointing at a cunt.

I guess it is the little things that keep them from playing catch with a bullet.

your bartape is fucking abysmal
why don't you buy some nice stuff online and rewrap it.
>>
>>1548696

Try bending it back, otherwise remove the bar tape and inspect the hood assembly and either replace the hood fastening bracket or...bend it back.
>>
>>1548737
you are a faggot and part of the problem. generals exist for a reason - in this case, it's supposed to contain retards who can't fathom just pushing their brifter back into place

Holy shit, your bike is fucked. Your top tube looks like it's at a 90 degree angle to your front wheel, you're going to have to bring that into the shop and just hope they can pull a hail mary to save it.

You can't just wallpaper over problems like this, Anon, he could lose a nad riding that bike.

>>1551174
Yeah, that shit's bad. You can probably get it checked out at a bike shop but they would probably just advise you to chuck it anyways.
>>
>>1548696
if you havent got carbon bars, just smack it with a fucking hammer, or your open palm. untill its about right

for what purpose
>>
>>1567828
I think there's an internal struggle between anons, jannies, and mods. Someone wants to kill a certain thread but jannies or mods are keeping it alive.
>>
>>1567871
it's literally one autistic guy bumping a handful of threads over and over
>>
>>1567828
>bumping a thread a week later to ask why it was bumped
>>
>>1567873
>hehehhe le ghostbumper so sneaky xD gotem
i'll just hide your threads, bye.
>>
>>1567872
My point still stands, that anon wants to erase something in the catalog but jannies/mods are keeping it alive. I remember seeing an anon admit it somewhere here. My assumption is that it's the orchid thread
>>
>>1567882
I don't think the ghost bumper is bumping his own threads, the threads that are ghost bumped have been different topics with seemingly different OPs
>>
>>1548696
Why is this thread still up.

Just loosen the bolt holding it on, readjust it and tighten it again.
And redo the bar tape while you're at it, please. That's a fucking abysmal job, I could do better and I don't even have half a brain cell.
