Without a doubt cool. You can never have too many thumbshifters.

The decent retro ones are cool

The POS ones you see attached to many BSO's are not cool

Unfortunately on sheer volume the BSO numbers outweigh the Decent retro ones and therefore they must be uncool

And before you shout I have used XT thumbies from about 1992 onwards, Gripshift from 95 and RF since 97 so thumbie were definately my first love

Hate the game not the player...

Deore + XT thumbies are cool, yes :)

SIS black plastic Thumbies, are however, in my opinion, a bit plop :cry:

A question for John: What's the green bike in the very first picture?
And loving the Funk in the second pic. Yummy yummy :twisted:

As far as retro goes and especially being asked on a retro site - then definately cool.
