It's sort of funny what folks can get used to. I first set up my ASC maybe a quarter century ago, with the 4-speed trigger I had lying around. Never bothered to open it up and file off the extra notch. It's easy enough to shift from "2" all the way up to "4". If you forget, you wind up in a real "neutral:" there is a very narrow freewheeling gate between top and second. I don't recommend using this, of course.

I'm not apathetic, I just don't care. :-)
