About $100+ US. Any lesser value SRAM derailleur with "ESP" should perform as well as the X.O.

I believe that some of the Actionbent trikes are being shipped with the SunTour levers that you describe, and I believe they have a friction mode. Actionbent is a US tradename for China Mascot. I will make an attempt to take a look at my 9-speed DuraAce barends on my Jetstream and see if it offers a friction mode--I believe it does.

Has anyone in reach of this discussion tried the ESP derailleurs with a Shimano barend in friction mode. I simply haven't, and would be curious to know if the Shimano levers would pull enough cable to move the derailler through its full range.
