I purchased a bike in September 2008 that has a 105 shifter for a compact crank; I believe the shifter would also be compatible with a triple. My first shifter failed in November 2008 The internal shifting mechanism jammed and broke when attempting to down shift. The LBS replaced it and the replacement is also sticking when attempting to down shift and I think it is only a matter of time before it fails. Has anyone else had this problem and if so what have you done about it?

Thanks for the reply, it does seem to get in the third position quite a bit; sometimes it will click down to second and then shift to first position with no problem then other times it seems to jam.

PS on my previous bike I had an older set of 105s and a triple crank and the shifter was trouble free.
