I have a very specific compatibility issue : I just bought a Shimano Nexus 8 "SG C6000-8R" rear hub and would like to know if I can use it with the Shimano "SL-S503" gear trigger.
The reference page, which is about a slightly different hub (mine doesn't have coaster brake) claims that we can use it with the Shimano SL-500, nothing said about SL-503.
So, does anyone have experience having a bike with both components? Or can someone surely say that they will work together.
More generally though, I don't understand how references are made: what's the difference between the SL-S500 and SL-S503, between the SG C6000 and SG C6001, etc?
