Hello everyone! I've recently bought shimano's inter-8 hub (8C31) and revoshifter. BUT, it doesn't fit on my handlebar. I mean, the total length of the shifter+grip is just too long. The handlebar isn't straight and the curve prevents the shifter from being placed far enough from the end of the handlebar so that there would be space for the grip. And I'm using an already shortened grip what's more. The revoshifter is SL-8S20.
So, what is the solution of the problem? I don't want to replace my handlebar, I like it. I'm thinking about replacing the nexus revoshifter for alfine shifter SL-S500 which is not a revo, so its mounting place (I mean the length of the tube by which it's put on the handlebar) is somewhat shorter.
Unfortunately, there's no shop here where there's such shifter present. I intend to buy it from chainreactioncycles. But I'd like to know for sure that it would fit, since it's rather expensive. Could anyone who has the same shifter (alfine SL-S500 http://bike.shimano.com/publish/cont...00.-type-.html) tell me the length of the mounting place of this shifter?
