Trigger shifters?
« on: August 24, 2017, 01:23:55 PM »
So is anyone using a trigger shifter instead of the twist shifter? I would like to hear about your experience.

Hi Thomas!

The Forum archives are your friend -- in early 2015, I did an extensive test of Cinq5's (Tour Terrain's) trigger shifters, published here:

Unfortunately, the uploaded photos I attached to the article seem to have become corrupted on the server, but the text and discussion are fully intact.

Best,

Dan.

Dan, I read the  "back issues"! Thanks!!
A side bar question. I think I read somewhere about converting a Sram trigger shifter?

Yes! You can use SRAM TRIGGER shifters as a flat-bar Rohloff shifting option provided they are paired with a Gebla external Rohbox shift-box.

Relevant links:

A variety of (modified) drop-bar "brifters" can be matched with the Rohbox as well.

All the best,

Dan.
