the fillets on the index caps would have to be ground off flat. I also think that the dt levers pull cable in the opposite direction of bar ends, so the cable exits in a different direction, for which thumbies aren't optimized. but hey, it still might work.
thumbies are good btw, I've got them now on my mtb.
I'd say, "as good or better than gripshift shifting, maybe not quite as fast as rapidfire, but still good, more durable, and cheaper."
