I have had the Kalkhoff Agattu 7 now for about a year and have
around 3800 miles on it. My problem is with the Shimano Nexus 7.
The gears 5 and 7 slip, especially 5. I have had it adjusted at a bike shop
to no avail. I think I might just have a bad gear box. Any one else have any
problems with the Shimano? It is under a two year warranty, but the shop where
I bought it is a long ways away.

@Mark Sorry, no help with the gears... but, am wondering if you like your Agattu 7? Any other issues? I am looking to purchase one and can't find any reviews specific to the 7. Thanks.

Do you know if your local shop replaced the shifter cable? If the Nexus system alignement markers constantly move out of alignement and / or causes issues throughout the shift then a new cable is required. Use the best shifter cable as cheap one's do stretch slightly and cause issues. Expensive one's cost $3-4 more so totally worth the money.

If cable was not the issue, would love to know what the issue was.
