s3x quickbeam on the road

s3x quickbeam, originally uploaded by BikeTinker.

Seatstay mounted shifter.
It only rotates on the bolt if you forget what gear you’re in and roll it way forward. Easily fixed with an allen wrench, and I hope to train myself out of it.

Awkward to shift while pedaling. If you’re going to gear down at every stoplight, you probably want the shifter on the bars. If you’re going to gear down on a big hill, and then hit the big gear on the way down, this should work.

More testing this weekend.
