Could it be true?! I am finally seeing less and less grip shifts about. Everyone now has the common sense to go and buy some quick/rapid fire shifters.
Grip shifts are just so cheap and tacky. Using them to shift gears feels like you've just chosen the worst trolley down at Tescos (for all you Americans/Canadians, that's about the equivelent to your Walmart!) and are trying to navigate it through a tricky course of shopping isles.
I'm just wandering if any poor person still rides with these horrible things anymore. Me? I have a Sram X7 rapid fire shifter - now that's comfortable!
