Cracked Shifter
I was riding and clipped a tree and the little plastic part of your shifter that connects and holds it to the handle bars cracked. The shifter works just fine but it is not connected to the handle bar? Can I fix this or do I have to get completely new shifters?

P.S. I have Shimono X.T. shifters from 2005.

RE: Cracked Shifter
pictures required.

shifters, except STI and barcons are very inexpensive, thus hard to justify repairing.
