Can you say jury rig?

Why not just buy some damn rearsets you cheap foo!!!!!

Tell the misses it's necessary to make the bike rideable, then get Gilles so you can have either reg shift or rev shift.

The only diffrence is that to upshift you would have to push down on the lever and pull up to downshift. Hence the name reverse shift. The theory is that it is easier to shift through a corner by pushing down since you dont have to get your foot under the lever while leaned over.

In all reality I think it really comes down to personal taste since people like Mat Mladin use the standard shift pattern :)

What is a reverse shift? Please explain, thanks!
GP shifting (reverse shifting) means that instead of shifting down for first and up for the rest, its up for first, and down for the rest.. When exiting a turn and leaned over pretty good, it is easyer to push down to get to the next higher gear than to try and put your foot under the shifter.. (in a nut shell) sound right everybody??
