Jimmy-Rigged Shifter on 3 sisters ride b
So the story goes, we had someone accidentally dropped their bike by the lookout point at the 3 sisters (woops), when we picked it up the shifter was pretty bad, trying to fix it caused it to snap. Now we are in a pickle. Luckily we had a hose clamp with us, we used that at first to get it going. (Remember we have 0 signal and are pretty far away from civilization).
Pic 1 - Lasted all day.
Story continues, on the way back home to Houston, it was starting to have issues. Luckily we were close a ACE hardware store. We purchased the following
L Brackets (Came with 4, we used 2)
2 smaller hose clamps
I also had the following in my bag (Batters Tape)
using 2 L Brackets, some batters tape and the hose clamps. We have the following. Worked very very well.

When my wife got her bike up in Denton, I agreed to ride it home until we got out of town south of Dallas. So we did. I got off, she got on and fell over at a stop sign trying to put her foot down. No damage to the bike but the shifter did break just like yours. So I rode it to the nearest Home Depot, borrowed a wrench to remove it, borrowed their drills that they demo, drilled it out, bought a Tap, bolt, nut and a hose to fit over the bolt. It worked like a champ the rest of the time we owned the bike!
Just the same way you are tortured by common sense, I am tortured as to why you have none.
