Nice work , love that Yeti !

just a question though , does rewiring the system invalidate the guarantee ?


Not sure but i suppose the wiring would be not under warrenty if the mech went anyway.

thanks andy

I have been doing some tinkering and have managed to intergrate the shifter into the XTR lever. Not only is this the real deal shimano trigger but it is in the perfect hand position, and they only cost £69.00 a trigger.

My other 2 bikes will now have these triggers when my stock finally arrives.

I think you're bonkers, but this is definately the future.

I love the fact that I can get all nostalgic about early 90's bikes and look at stuff like this all on the same internet forum. Two ends of the spectrum and the sites a richer place for it.
