hello (mind the n00b!!),
i'm doing a bit of spring cleaning on my bike, need to replace a shifter... i've been pining for old shifters i had, like the simple gripshift units, and also, i really miss these retro units i had, they were simple click indexing type but with three paddles underneath the bar with foam ends... machine tech i think... they were kind of unique, got them at bike show 2001 or 2. anything like this exist today, 'cos i'm bored with my XT triggers?
i'm a little disappointed @ sram (mostly) incomaptible with shimano 9 speed, all i can see is sram units & STi triggers.
please help!! i miss all the tricknology of years gone by. bah! should i just give up my soul & go for whole groupsets (lol)?!
