Trouble shifting down

Yesterday the bike was fine. today I am having trouble shifting down. Goes up through the gears no problem and down from fifth to fourth and fourth to third OK but from third to second and from second to first I push the gear selector down and nothing happens. However if I put my foot under the gear selector and gently lift the pedal slightly without going up a gear and then press the selector down it will shift from 3 to 2 and from 2 to 1 fine.

????????

Thumbs up Re: Trouble shifting down

If you're talking about an LT, then lube your shifter linkage. Sounds like the spring isn't returning your lever to the nuetral position to make the next shift.

Might be something mre sreiuos, but do the lube first.

Due to heart health, the Dr says not to ride under 40 degree air temp. Ugh! Now it is harder to get my 18000 miles a year in just in the summer. Guess that stopped my 20 degree rides now.
