Re: How do you do your handlebars with geared bikes?
Using a thumb throttle allows you to keep the grip shift on the right.
Some members use a stick shifter to keep the handlebars uncluttered.
I have seen stick shifters mounted on the stem, seat tube, seat stay and some
other places. You don't shift that often on a motorized bike, so it is not necessary
for the shifter to be mounted at your finger tips.
Stick shifters can be made pretty easily from a grip shifter.
