I found my twist shifter inconvenient because it is very hard to twist, I would want to replace it with a trigger shifter to make it convenient. Is this possible?

    Yes! but if you can edit in pictures of the shifters and derailleurs it will be possible to say which ones are required – Swifty May 21 '20 at 14:27

Yes, this is possible. You just have to select trigger shifters that are compatible with your derailleurs.

As far as as know, Shimano only offers twist shifters in their low-level Tourney range, which are all rear 7 or 6 sprockets, and either triple or single chainring cranks. You just need Tourney shifters that match the number of sprockets in the rear and chainrings in the front. There are several models of Tourney shifters but they are all interchangeable.

The same principle should hold if you SRAM gripshift twist shifters and derailleurs.

  • @Swifty, you just tourney the twist shifters right? – Argenti Apparatus May 21 '20 at 21:40
  • I mean, that nearly works! Classic Shimano namey things – Swifty May 22 '20 at 7:21
