I saw this on sale for $34.99 via bikewagon's website, so I jumped on it. It's listed there as a 3x9 shifter on that site, as well as several others. There is nothing in the instructions that mention 3 speed and when I click it, I only have 1 up and 1 down.

Does anyone know if this can indeed be used with 3x9? If so, is there a specific way to set it or something else I have to do?

Read that, and right out of that doc...

" This lever is designed for use with double and triple chainwheels.
When used in combination with a double chainwheel, if you try to
overstretch the shifting lever to the top position, it may break."

Sorry to ask an obvious question, but did you make sure that you started with the lever in the position for the smallest chain ring? If you started in the middle position cable tension won't allow it to move to the smallest ring.
