Need shifter ideas

Postby WebFootFreak » Sun Jul 19, 2015 7:09 am

My wife is riding a Granite Peak on slicks. No off-road for her at all. Long story short- she was on the trainer last week and the twist-shift for the RD went out completely. She really didn't like them in the first place. I need ideas on what I can acquire to change it over to thumb shift. Let's see it's a 6-speed freewheel, triple front. This is also what she wants, so thumb shifters it will be!

Try shimano tx 30 triggers but I don't know the compatability with your drivetrain.To be honest the throws are calibrated exactly with the shifting mechanism so you have to figure out how to integrate it with your system.I know it can be done somehow because road bikers switch shifters a lot but it might be easier to just get the whole setup.
