    Thanks for the replies. I also noticed there is a brand called Microshift that makes some thumb shifters for the Shimano Inter 7 hubs.

    Any thoughts on quality of Shimano vs Microshift?

    Thanks...
  2. Replacing Shimano Nexus 7 Twist Shifter with the Shimano Nexus SL-7S50 trigger shift?

    Hello everyone,

    I recently bought a Specialized Globe Roll 7 bike.

    This bike comes with the Nexus SG-7R50 internal, 7 speed hub.

    It comes with a Twist Shifter which I'm not overly fond of.

    Thanks for the suggestions so far. I did have a look at the Linus bikes at the local dealer and that is an option I'm considering.

    I was poking around the Raleigh website last night and found the...

    Thanks for the reply. I'm not overly mechanically inclined so I was hoping to buy a bike from a local store that is already built and ready to go.

    disk brakes are not a concern for me.
  8. Cromoly Frame with Internal Gear Hub suggestions?

    I think this might be the most appropriate forum for this.

    I'm looking for a steel cro mo frame with an internal gear hub. I had a look at the Globe Roll 7, but the store doesn't have my size in...

    For me, the initial attraction was low maintenance. I was tired of having my multi-speed bikes making clicking/clacking sounds and chains getting stuck between gears. I'm mechanically inept, so it...

    I'll probably give it a shot with the stock components first for a while to see how it goes. I'm not planning on hitting many bumps and only want to stick to paved smooth surfaces until I can assess...

    I bought an XL frame which seemed to fit well. The cross bar was higher than what I'm used to with my old Giant (I still had clearance for my groin, but not the 4 or 5 inches on my old bike), but the...

    I want to be respectful of the sales rep helping me, but at the same...

    Hey everyone,

    I've read multiple older threads on here and still a bit confused. My last bike purchase was a Giant Iguana over 22 years ago and it's time for something new. I haven't used a bike...
