Very nice, love the GripShift CX-DT 225 version, looks very clean.
Do you cut your grips down or leave them full length?

The really first grip shift (on the first picture) got a bolt which is "drilling" the handle bar… Not so cool on such rare combo…
I really prefer thumbshifters :D

Absolutely agree. Had them on my Cannondale SM 1000 and they were a real pain in the ass.
Switched to Suntour thumbies just two weeks after buying the bike!
