    Pull back the clutch lever on the extended rod that is attached to the shifter shaft just like you do with a clutch on a handlebar and then use the foot shifter like you do on a regular bike.

    Shift like you normally would but with your hand. I understood what you meant.


    The key looks like it's in the way. It obviously must not be but it looks close.

    I don't think we can call them that anymore. It's not PC. Lol!

    Is jockey shift still allowed or is that not PC too?

    The world may change, me not so much I tend to do things old school, But I know you’ve already figured that out right?

    But I’ll give it a try. Euthanasia shifter?

    If you notice the offset on the extended shifter rod, you'll see that the offset if made this way to clear the key.

    I'm sure it does. I just think I wouldn't like trying to stick that little key in with my big man hand.

    I like the look and my gripe is a tiny one.
