Bicycle Mechanics - What is this other opening on my shifter?
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I was wondering if anyone could tell me the function of this other opening on the shifter in the photo below? (Shown via pen).

Some Shimano shifters used to have a "Central Information" deck. It was a mechanical, cable driven, gear indicator.
Yea, that deck kind of looked like a miniature dashboard looming over your stem.
