Shifting on triplets, quads etc. etc.
Our road double has friction shifting and while old works fine.
But our MTB triple has indexed shifting and the front is woeful. Can only ever get good shifting on two of the the three chain rings, either big and middle. Or small and middle. So I bought all new XTR 981. And it's still crap. :/
So I'm now considering pulling it off, and sticking it on my single MTB. And trying friction shifting on it? It just seems that it is too long to get even a new cable and top of the range group set to work reliably. It's getting to the point where no one is keen on riding on it any more. All of my family love riding their singles and our road double, but are no longer willing to persist with the triple. Please help.
