    SRAM Force Double Tap Rear Shifter - came off

    Anyone know, does this shift lever pop back in somewhow or did it somehow break? I can't really see any part that looks broken. I have attached pics.

    You can't see where it broke in pic #2?!? It's dead. Past warranty as well.

    thanks cxwrench. Can you buy just the doubletap lever / shifter assembly or do you have to buy the entire brake lever and all?

    Lemme look around for bit, that might be available.

    ETA: I can't find the parts kit for sale to the public but your shop might be able to get that from SRAM. They're very easy to take apart and put back together.

    A friend of mine busted the shifter paddle on a Red 22 and was able to just get that part (not the whole assembly) from SRAM I think so there's hope perhaps.

    Thanks everyone. I will see what my lbs says. Just a note, I've ridden the same Campagnolo components for the past 15 years and never had a single issue. I got this SRAM Force/rival bike yesterday, rode it exactly 1 mile, and the shifter breaks. Hmmm...

    That shifter is 10 years old...not like it's new.

    when it comes to durability, it's Shimano & Campy is ahead Sram. My Dura Ace 7400 shifters and derailleurs from the 90s still working today, amazing

    Every sram right hand shifter made in 2010 or 2011 has snapped at that point. I've warrantied a couple. Every one of my friends have as well. Famous design/ forging flaw.

    If you have a good relationship with your lbs and they have a good relationship with sram they might try to warranty them for you. Out of warranty or not.

    Not every but a lot. Mostly Rival, some Force, a few Red. Most shops don't have any 'relationship' w/ SRAM. No one orders anything from them, you just call when you have a problem. They have industry leading CS but I doubt they'll replace a 10+ year old lever. Can't hurt to try, though.
