Great work Orchid and nice to see those great quality mods. Did you install the hybrid base bushings to pair with your shifter?

If the Hybrid is anything like the Acuity...Install the bushings, with a little bit of o-ring lube on the rubber surfaces. Game changer.

***Edit: I called them the wrong name. It’s the optional cable bushings that are needed

Very cool find. Good luck with the build. Do you have an estimate of what it’s going to cost in the end?
