Hi folks!! This is my first post. I'm a noob so bear with me. I have been MTBing for about 2 years and my fist bike is a hardtail Trek 4300 with discs brakes. I love it and it has been through noobie hell and still holding its own. Great entry level bike. Now, on to my question...
Going against my better judgement, I bought my wife an inexpensive bike at the local sporting goods superstore. We didn't want to spend any more money in case she didn't like it...well, she likes it and now she doesn't like the grip shifters that those bikes come with.
I read a post here from Colema62 (here) and he bought the same shifters I am looking at, Shimano STX-7, but he also hasn't been back here so I can't ask him if it worked out (disallowing email also). I really want to know that these will work before I buy them. They are here for $25. Her bike is a 7 speed "Schwinn" and this is the only 7 speed set I can find. She has Shimano derailers and SRAM grip shifters.
We can't really afford to buy her a nice bike right now and we don't want to buy another boat anchor from the superstore.
Thoughts, direction, any input would be appreciated.
