    That looks pretty nice! I've not bothered with nicer seatposts, but I do find the multi-piece clamps to be a nuisance. It'll be interesting to hear what you think of the Microshift trigger(?)...

    Thumbshifters were actually my first idea. I think I'd like this sort of arrangement since recent experiments with shifters on top of the bar have been kind of annoying, but I wasn't able to make...

    Yours actually do friction mode well? My Accushift thumbshifters have nice indexing in "7" mode and kind of soft indexing in "F" mode. Mine are XC-LTD, so possibly one of their other models had a...

    Update: I may have found a respectable solution to the added-quill funkiness. Suntour ratchet Powershifters on a modified Huret downtube mount that happens to fit the Stem Raiser pretty nicely. No...

    That one looks rather nice! I'd only previously been aware of the ones that attach to the handlebar the bottom appears designed to drag back and forth across the head tube. Though, now I have to...

    It does look pretty daffy, doesn't it? A better solution along these lines might be to cut up a disused quill stem to make just a stubby little shifter adapter that sticks up no farther than the top...

    Now, what is going on here? Looks weird, right?

    So yesterday I received the Delta Stem Raiser Pro (advertised to...

    This is interesting. I tried mocking up the above setup with some old XC-LTD thumbshifters and the brake levers I have, and discovered that when the shifters are turned into the most convenient...

    That'd be nifty if it works out. I have some 1991 XC-LTD Accushift thumbshifters, and the rear shifter has two modes, "7" and "F". Its "friction" setting ... isn't, really. Maybe it was intended...

    With any sort of multiposition bar, I've found it hard to get a comfortable thumbshifter mounting position where the levers aren't poking my hands, which is why I've gravitated toward barcons, since...

    I too had considered the advantages of having an extra set of extremely-nice shift levers .... :)



    Good info there!

  12. Vintage Power-ratchet thumbshifters vs. downtube shifters on thumb mounts?

    Wondering if anyone has input on the ergonomic aspects of this comparison.

    I have these Suntour ratching downtube shifters mounted on bar-end pods:

    Neat info. It's a good bike, even if I haven't gotten quite the use out of it I'd hoped. I may have mentioned early on that this bike also came with grip shifts, but I hate grip shifts, so they...

    True, true.

    The question is more just a "what are the differences" question, since the Longboards are obviously an excellent (probably the best) option but the Commuter IIs are quite a bit...
  15. SKS fenders: Longboard vs. Chromoplastic vs. "Commuter 2" (or Bluemel?)

    Just a quick question someone might be able to help with.

    The Longboards, if I understand correctly, are basically Chromoplastics that come with the fancy long mudflaps already installed for a few...

    I guess the Suntour shifters make up for it, though. :)

    Just saw this customized Specialized Sequoia on Fleabay. Not "poor" enough for a lot of folks, but seems like a good value, and very Riv-ish with the 650b conversion and R559 brakes!
