    Nexus 7 shifter options and brake power

    Hello

    I have just been given a commuter with a Nexus 7 hub on it.
    Is there any choice of shifter - I presume in true shimano style they won't be 2:1 and 1:1 like other shifters....

    And is there anything I can do to improve the rear brake (drum)?

    Thanks

    Matt

    What I like about a drum brake and the reason I use it on my winter bike is that the braking is constant, very bad but constant.
    Put some grease from time to time on the grease port , and make sure the tab is tight to your frame. Nothing much to do to increase power....
