6SP Suntour Accushift lever w/ Shimano 7SP Freewheel+Derailleur;who's really done it?
So Sheldon says that you can get remarkably good shifting with a 6-speed Suntour Accushift shift lever combined with a Shimano 7-speed freewheel (or cassette, I assume) and Shimano derailleur, getting all 7 speeds by using the limit screw as the bottom- or top-end and the index-notches in the shifter for the other 6 gears. With modern chains and hyperglide teeth he wrote the shifting could be even better this way than with New 6-speed Suntour throughout the drivetrain.
Sounds great in theory, and it would solve a problem on a vintage bike o' mine, but I was hoping to hear stories of folks who have actually done this and been pleased with the results.
