Already changed the wheels back to stock. The axle isn't long enough on the Felt wheel to allow it to shift right. I think I'll put a Nexus 7 in the stock wheel instead.
Hmmm, didn't know there were different lengths. I had looked into that. I used the one from the Electra wheel as the Felt wheel didn't come with one. It had the same shifting problem as my Basman. Wouldn't stay in second gear, you have to hold the shifter against third to use second. I ended up putting an 8-speed on the Basman to fix it. I'll have to compare the push rod from that one to the one on the Felt and Electra.Nick, just a heads up in case you are unaware of it, that Felt rear wheel takes a long push rod for the shifter. A lot of the Electra Nexus wheels take the short push rod. Be sure you didn't use a short rod as no amount of fiddling with the adjustment will get it to shift right with that one. Please ignore me if none of this applies to your circumstances.
I measured the one from my Basman and it is 86.92mm. The one in the GR is 81.79mm. I guess I can try the Felt wheel again with the Basman pushrod and see what happens. I never could get the Basman to shift right vs my other Nexus 3 bike which never has any problem.If it indeed is a push rod problem on the Felt cruiser wheels, the push rod that you need is the 86.85mm one (for 175mm axle). The part number is Y-33S 98180.
Good luck finding one in the states, I had to buy one from Petra Cycles in the UK.
Sadly, they appear to be out of stock.
Nick, it'd be better if you measured the hub axle itself.I measured the one from my Basman and it is 86.92mm. The one in the GR is 81.79mm. I guess I can try the Felt wheel again with the Basman pushrod and see what happens. I never could get the Basman to shift right vs my other Nexus 3 bike which never has any problem.
