Just heard about them on a CX site. They sound very interesting - particularly the ones that are compatible with v-brakes and mtb mech discs. Price is right too. Anyone using them?

Here is the link to their webpage if your curious.

Oooo - I've been looking for something like them for a drop bar project - someone tell me they work.

The only critique would be whether you can access the full 10 clicks of the shifter without dislocating something.

Do they look like the sunrace thumbies to you?

Yes they do: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sturmey-Arche ... 5d38e2159d

Not a bad thing though, I have a Sunrace shifter and it seems to be good quality, nicely made and well finished.

Another alternative is to use Kelly take-offs and ordinary levers.
