Evening all. In March I purchased a Whyte 129s which comes with a Seam X9 groupset. Whilst it works brilliantly I can't get used to the shifters. I have very big hands and I find my thumbs hit the shift down lever when going over bumps which is a bit irritating and never happened with Shimano.. Suffice to say I can't just change the shifters, so need to swap the rear mech as well, in which case I might as well do the whole lot! :(

It is in great condition having had a couple of hours a week use since April.

So a massive long shot: does anyone out there want to swap their 2013 Shimano XT kit for my Sram X9? I reckon that's the closest in price and quality from the 2 ranges.
