It's a lengthy thread, but he gets into some good detail w/pics around here. With a solid linkage you could use trigger/thumb, or even a twist grip if you wanted to.

Plus it'd feel more solid than cables too eh?

Just another thought for the pile

Thanks Greg for the info. I may just leave the foot shifter on after all and run it like that till I have one of those Bud Light design nights...ya know when sh-t just pops into your mind for no reason...

I may get alot done this weekend since the forcast says rain...rain...rain
