About: My full time job as an Organ Grinder keeps me pretty busy but that's just small change. My part time work, as a Mohel, keeps me up to date on my student loans from UCLSD.

I ride a straight 8 speed bike. This only calls for one shifter and I came up short in a time of need.  Looking around I decided to make an old 10 speed double goose neck shifter make do.  I simply took half of it apart and use it as a thumb shifter.  It works great!
