WTB-Reverse knob shifter

Postby Snuggly Ranger » Sun Jul 16, 2017 11:02 pm

I am looking for a reverse Shiter for a 2016 Gear Up, but I can't justify the $200+ price on them. Does anyone out there have one for sale? Or... anyone is anyone selling their bike and want to take it off and sell it?

Thanks!

I know what you mean $200.00. Priority or convenience. Mine was a priority AND is sooo convenient and cool. Worth every penny hands down. :bow:

Who knows, maybe I get lucky and someone has one. I will probably order one in the next couple weeks if not.

Expensive yes, my Reverse/2WD was well worth it to me and like tgtrotter said, "it's sooo convenient and cool."

Ha! Keep the tread going. Building one is still option two for me, but I have already started my research. If I make it, I want it to look more like the one you can buy from Raceway where the knob is up higher on the tank.

As usual, I got impatient and ordered one! The only reason I could justify it was because Raceway had 20% off. Thanks for your help guys!
