CANT RIDE NORMAL SHIFT ANYMORE. i keep to have to remind friends who ride my bike its all reverse.
That makes #35 with me. Nobody is ever gonna be stealing my bike and riding off with it anytime soon they are gonna have to push. I know of zero road bikes around here with GP style. People have told me I am nuts
I don't know what all this rod bending is about. Mine is still straight and just goes outside of the frame. I wrecked and bent the rearset in a little so my shift rod rubs a little every once in a while, but no big deal.
Really? I've read a couple How-To's, and they've always shown having to make two bends to clear the frame. I haven't personally looked at mine. I might just have to get out there and tinker around with it.
after getting sidi boots a few months ago i've been having issues upshifting. every time i rode with my girlfriend on the back she would always ask if something was wrong with the bike... "no i just can't feel the lever so i f up all the up shifts."
today we went out and had no problem. the cool thing is i only have trouble feeling the lever when i get my boot under the lever. so when i mess up a downshift now it obviously isn't as noticeable when messing up an upshift. when accelerating and running through the gears it makes things so much easier now. i'll be out again tomorrow to get some more time to play with it. i think this may be a keeper.
only issue i had was when i forgot about the gp shift and slowed down for a 5 mph turn and realized i was in 6th gear...
