I hosed up the grip twist shifter as the allen screw stripped when I tried to move it for a new set of grips. I then ordered what I thought was a replacement which was an MRX Comp SRAM shifter. No go.
Got a Shimano Alivo (I think it's Alivo) trigger shifter and while 8 is really 1 and vice versa which bothers me not in the least. Anyway I have a vinyl sign machine and could make a 1 and 8 which will cover it and look acceptable.
Anyway, it took about 5 minutes to install and get the derailleur shifting right. Got my new grips on and replaced the chain just for the heck of it. Now all I need to do it clean it up and then it's time to ride. Although now it's fixed I have a business trip to go on wouldn't you know. Pics later. No camera with me today when I finished up and the bike is a greasy mess.
