    Gen 1 race shift conversion

    Hi

    Hopefully going to convert my road bike to race shift to bring in line with my track bike, was wondering if I have to have anything done to the OEM quickshifter if I change it from road to race shift?

    Thanks

    Alex

    It's just the rearset that needs to change AFAIK. i.e. you need the mount point to be the other side of the fulcrum.
