    Upset workin the bugs out of 1x4

    hub is commin so i better work out the details.

    gonna use a xt der and some kind of thumby. whats my best option. Paul has the thumb shifter mounts but is the big S my only option for a shifter? The shifter needs to be friction (1x4).

    pumped for the new build. i have been wanting this kind of set up for a long time now!

    If you use 9 (or 8) speed cog spacing you can use an indexed 9 (or 8) speed shifter.

    I added a 1mm spacer to 8 speed spacers and use an indexed 6 speed shifter.

    Otherwise you can buy cheap ($10) friction thumb shifters.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    All Thumbshifters Come With Bar Clamps

    The Paul mounts are only for using Shimano bar end shifters as thumbshifters
