stem shifter. no I'm serious.
question is, is that crazy?
I have two old shimano groupsets -- "Z" something or other -- thought I'd maybe rock a stem shifter rather than shelling out for a bar end shifter.
I mean, why not? I'll basically have a 6 speed rear and be throwing it back and forth between hi and lo and wherever.
Race day is 1 month away, and I'm picking up a bunch of parts that came in at the shop tomorrow, but I'm still not set on whether I'm going to just say screw it and go single speed.
