    Hi all,
    I'm planning to install a shift cable for my friend's bike since it was forever missing,... but before I do so, I opened the cover and tested by just clicking. I found that only 2 solid clicks available while this bike has 3 front gear (see my picture attachment)








    Is it because there's something wrong with this old worn out shifter/brake combo, that I will need to buy a new one, OR, it's normal since it's empty/no shifting cable installed yet??

    Appreciate for any advise!!

    Sounds completely fine. Think of it like this - start in low gear, click, now you're in mid gear, click, now high gear. Should only be two clicks.
