- One arm set up (pics)
Tried setting it up with the original hydro brake but the brackets and even removal of shifter windows made it difficult to fit in. Ended up with a cable doubler and Avid brakes. The brake bias can be adjusted from front to rear so very tunable for the rider. Quite pleased with the result, seems to work well after a quick roadtest and fettle.

why not spend 9.99 on a 3 spd grip shift and tify the whole thing up, we’ve done a lot of one handed set ups with everyting from rohloffs and hope brakes to a trike for a 5 year old
very satisfying getting someone who thought they’d never be able to ride out on a bike with a smile on their facePosted 8 years agodave_hMember
Tried the gripshift option but the newer generations have bulky brackets that get in the way of the rear shift levers.
How about fitting the gripshift to the end of the bar? Probably a bit tricky to twist properly with only your little finger and the outside of your hand to grip it.
just looks untidy but is functional.
An old thumbshifter in friction mode would work nicely for the front mech, would allow for easy trimming and would look neat. A Suntour would would be best I reckon.Posted 8 years ago
