How would I know if my shifter is broken
#1
This concerns a Shimano Tiagra 4600 2x shifter.

There is travel remaining in the rear deraileur, but none in the shifter itself. I can't reach the two biggest cogs using either of the front chainrings.

I did dump the bike, albeit not hard. However, that accident caused the shifter housing to become out of line with the handlebars. I suspect either my repair efforts or the crash have damaged the shifter.

The crash did bend the rear deraileur, but that has since been replaced and aligned.

Thanks,

Chip
