does this still take m8 metric threaded rod?

Hello. Do you have knob without engraving? or better, can you make 7+R version? (R in bottom right)

The cable holder is this one https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2798689

I am not at home right now, so I cannot check but from memory you need to print two band attachments, they go on the threaded bolts on either side of the shifter parallel to axis that you use to select a gear. Then the band attachment centre goes on the shifter selector itself. I then use two rubber bands one for each side.

Each band goes through the band attachment centre then around the band attachment then back to the centre piece. with one band on each side it makes the shifter self centre.

Once I get back I will take some more photos and post them. I think I might have improved the design on the rubber band attachments as well.

The Centre Piece printed for me with just supports touching the bed.

if you could upload a picture of whats inside in the center where the shifter self centers itself that would be great.

Does that assembly change at all from the original version?

  • Specifically with the Band part, I am not sure this was gone over in the original design as this is the part that helps self center.

Do you have a link to the cable holder design you have mounted to the side of the board?
Did you have any trouble printing the Center Pieces and them needing supports?

Thank you for your time and design!

Can we get a hardware parts list?

Where is the piece that the bearings go into

They go on either side of the "centre piece". I also printed a small cap to be a push fit to keep them on. I see that I didn't upload that so I will try to find the original file.

Hello good desing thanks . Can you do re-build and test video? Also which component did you use?

would love to see a video of this in use, oh yes

I will take one over the next couple of days for you.
Lap times are comparible with using the sequential paddle shift, but more realistic for sure. Heal and toe timing needs to be altered though as there is a slight delay as you move the shifter in the gate compared to using the paddle shifters.
