Twist vs trigger... I've read that it comes down to preference but with new components coming out, is there a reason one is better (if one is)?
My M500 Cannondale (15 years old) has the trigger shifters and I like them, most likely because I'm used to them. I rode two bikes today that both had twist grip shifters and while they were nice, to me they felt a little awkward. The Trek 7200 seemed more quick and responsive while the Cannondale Adventure 3's shifter seemed to have too much spacing between the 1-2-3 shifts on the front cogs.
Was it just my lack of time using the twist grips? Right now, I think I would prefer to stay with the trigger style but hey, I can learn to love the twist as well.
