I usually ride my WorldSport, which has friction shifting, after recently discovering some off road trails in the area I busted out my Jamis which has triger style Shimano index shifters. Is it practicle to convert the index shifters to friction? does anyone make friction shifters for newer and modern aplications? I don't want to change the whole drive train. But I'm very fond of the connected feeling that friction shifters provide and the ease of care / adjustment.
Any help/ feedback is great, Thanks
