Pulling the Trigger vs Doing the Twist: Thoughts on 3-Speed Gear Shifters
this shifter on my previously-owned Pashley, which came with the 7-speed Shimano hub I innocently selected.
While I am not suggesting that everybody ought to run out and demand trigger shifters with their 3-speed bicycles, I am hoping that this comparison will provide some food for thought to those who are getting a new bike, or deciding which hub to select with a new build. I would also like to ask whether anybody knows where I can find a trigger shifter that is compatible with a 3-speed Shimano Nexus hub? Even if it involves rigging something up with a "thumbie" derailleur-style shifter, I am up for it. Thanks in advance for any advice.
