Shift:R Tour for Pinion

The Shift:R Tour for Pinion brings trigger shifting to Pinion bikes. Incorporating our second generation of Shift:R technology, this shift system provides an alternative to the standard Pinion twist-shifter. The Shift:R Tour for Pinion is compatible with all C-line gearboxes.

The Shift:R Tour is perfectly suited for use on tours and your daily commute, as the shifting performance does not suffer even under wet conditions. Some design features are valuable upgrades to the twist shifter, such as the ability to customize the shift levers to your personal preference or the ability to shift and brake at the same time.

In the Shift:R shift box only the best and highest quality materials are used, such as the impact-resistant 6061 aluminium for the housing and the shift mechanism made of special stainless steel for optimum shift performance and a very long service life. The spring assembly is equipped with overload protection.

Your questions - Our answers

I have general questions about the product (4)
1. Are the levers on the Pinion and Rohloff versions identical?

Yes, both levers are identical.

2. Can the Shift:R be installed on the P- or C-line gearboxes?

The Shift:R for Pinion is only compatible with C-Line gearboxes.

3. Does the ShiftR also come for the P-line?

At present, this is not possible control due to the design of the P-line gearbox housing.

4. Can the Shift:R also be used for all C-line transmissions: 6-, 9- and 12- speed?


I have questions about use (7)
1. My Shift:R creaks or feels “scratchy” on one or both sides when shifting.

This is caused by too much shift cable tension, causing one of the pawl mechanisms to remains in contact with the gears. Reduce the tension of the opposite (!) lever until the switching noise disappears. See instructions.

2. Shifting is not possible, the levers will not move.

The cable tension is too high, reduce cable tension on both sides.

3. How come I can only shift one gear?

Depending on the pawl position, a bit of “backlash” can occur. That means, if you change shift direction then a small gap must be closed before shifting engages. If you can only shift one gear if you have not changed direction, increase the tension slightly. (see instructions)

4. Can I shift under load?

Somtimes. Gearbox gears without a clutch cannot be shifted under high load, unlike derailleur systems. It is not necessary to completely stop un-weight your pedal stroke, only to reduce pressure.

5. Can I use the Shift:R year-round?

Of course! Please note that in winter conditions the demands on the material and the possibility of corrosion are increased due to road salt. As with all components, this can results in increased maintenance and servicing costs.

6. After shifting when the lever returns to its original position, I hear a ratcheting noise. Is this normal?

Yes, that sound is the Shift:R Box ratchet returning into position for the next shift.

7. Can I also use the Shift:R Tour on mountain bikes?

There is no reason not to use the Shift:R Tour on mountain bikes. That being said, the Shift:R Tour series is not necessarily designed for “advanced” or “hardcore” mountain biking in mind as the shifting behaviour in combination with the gearbox is not as defined, and the ability to shift under load is limited in comparison to a modern derailleur. Technically, however, there are no problems in this application.

I have questions about maintenance (3)
1. What are the maintenance intervals?

We recommend checking the cables and lubricating the Shift:R Box annually with the maintenance of the gearbox or hub. Please refer to the care instructions in the product manual.

2. What cables should I use?

Commercially available shift cables can be used.

3. Do I have to, or can I use a brake housing for assembly?

Absolutely not! Brake housing does not offer enough rigidity to allow sufficient shifting precision.

I have questions about assembly (2)
1. Can I carry out the assembly myself?

It is possible if you have experience with bicycle drivetrains and gearboxes. If in doubt, however, we always recommend going to a specialist.

2. Do I have to/can I use a brake sleeve for the assembly?

Absolutely not! Brake housing does not offer enough rigidity to allow sufficient shifting precision.
