Hi was wondering what everyone thinks of indexed shifting as opposed to friction shifting?
Is it more work to maintain?
Do I need all special index parts? such as special cassette? Or can i just use the shifters with any cassette derailleur etc?
I do all the fixes on my bike and if this makes it much more complex or i have to buy many new parts then i think i will just avoid it.
Im a commuter and mostly just want things to not break.
