Opinons on Suntour Acushift over Grip shifts
I picked up a bike (91 720 Trek multitrack hybrid) I plan to flip after some clean up and new tubes and it has a set of Acushifts on it that look interesting and seem to work well enough.
On my M400 made Hybrid I have Grip shifts I'm not particularly fond of. Seems that I manage to make unintentional shifts frequently jumping curbs or standing to pull hills etc. Thinking of swapping them before I sell the Trek.
Will the Indexing be the same between a Suntour Freewheel/derailleur and a Shimano Cassette/derailleur? (both are 7's). I have liked suntour parts I have tinkered with and have a couple bikes with that brand parts (had a Miyata six ten and my wife's Mixte has ARX's). This is the first set of Accushifts I have messed with and want to know if they are problem prone before I go to the trouble to do the swap.
