Trek 1000 shifter/ing
So I just got a Trek 1000, my very first roadbike. To start off with, I love the bike having only had MTBs before.
It is old, I am poor, so we aren't parting company anytime soon.
But the shifter, oh god the Suntour shifter on it is terrible. I am used to nice indexed thumb shifters from an MTB that were nearly effortless...but this thing is terrible.
The placement is bad, the indexing is bad, just overall the worst part of the bike in my opinion.
So can I upgrade this to something else, any suggestions here? Is there some sort of adjustment i can do to it, everything I have tried so far has met with mixed results.
