Heel/Toe Shifter
« on: July 12, 2014, 03:25:44 PM »
Is there much interest on the forum for a heel/toe shifter?  That would be something I would consider buying from NFG myself.

I believe the Indian domestic bikes have these as well. I tried it on my C5 and it wasn't that exciting....fairly cumbersome actually.  I took it off after 3 days.

I have a heel toe on my G5.  I love it.  I never liked the idea of sticking my foot under a lever.  I have never enjoyed riding a bike that I have to do that with.

I ordered one from an Indian dealer on Ebay about a year and Half ago, best thing I ever did. I never did like my shoes getting scuffed up, plus I find it's easier shifting this way.  :)

So mine came in and I hope to put it on before my next ride.  I will update you all on my thoughts after a few rides.
