Difficulty shifting on small hubs

edited April 2012 in Sportster
My right gear shifter is crazy hard to shift down. When I got it, Mickey at LaidBack Cycles in Sacramento tried a couple of adjustments and may have done some good but it STILL make me grit my teeth and use all my strength to change gears down on the small hubs. I have a hybrid bike with similar shifter and have NO problem shifting it. I have arthritis in my hands and cannot make a tight fist which exacerbates the problem. Love the trike other than this!
