Trigger Shifter for Walmart bike

Wife has a cheap Walmart bike (Avalon CS). The twist shift broke and I replaced it with a friction shifter. She hates the friction shifter. Would one of the $15-20 Nashbar trigger shifters work? It is a single chaining with 7 speed cassette in the back. The derailleur is a Shimano SIS.

Yes. Decent quality 7 speed trigger shifters are really inexpensive. Just make sure it says shimano compatible (which it almost certainly will be)

I don't know what Nashbar has on offer, but here are some Shimano-brand M310 shifters that will do the job:

Shimano M310 7 Speed Shift Lever > Components > Drivetrain > Mountain Shifters | Jenson USA

Be sure to buy one each of left and right, as they are listed separately.

8 speed shifter will also work if you end up finding a cheap one. Just ensure it's compatible with Shimano.

Thanks, for the response folks and $10 for the right 7sp shifter is well cheaper than what I thought it would be.
