Adjusting Shifting Lever Position

When I am wearing boots I have to angle my foot excessively to get it into the upshift position. Is the away to adjust the linkage to move this shifter up 1/8" ???

Thanks for any advice!
Chris

Re: Adjusting Shifting Lever Position

Thanks - I got it. It was very simple. This bike is new to me so just wasn't sure if there were any tricks to it... but just loosened the 2 nuts (10mm) and then turned the linkage rod and I could visibly see the sift move... so I adjusted it up just a tad... I'm out riding today and it is perfect.

Thanks,
Chris
