    Shimano Nexus 3 spd - Shifter Options?

    Does anyone know of any options for a Shimano Nexus 3 speed shifter besides the standard revo shifter? I would like to avoid a gripshifter if possible. Maybe something along the lines of an old sturmey archer shifter? (http://aebike.com/page.cfm?action=de...=30&SKU=LD2205)

    Anyway, just let me know if anyone has any ideas.

    You might be able to make an old friction thumbshifter or bar-end shifter work.
