Who actually invented the thumb or finger bar shifter? Was it Sturmey Archer? I can imagine the evolution of the S/A to a mountain bike thumbie, but somone on the forum must know.

My son's bike is now wearing a pair of Shimano SIS thumb shifters that I salvaged some time ago. It's ready to go again and the Revoshifts are ready to go as well (they're just going somewhere else).

If You Were Going to Huret, Would it be Allvit or Svelto?

I have two choices and I'm leaning toward the Svelto. Convince me one way or the other. BTW this is going on an old Gitane, and I don't want to hear about SunTour or Shimano.
