... I want one, I think they look good.

All the ones I see are rapid rise. aka reverse spring, yes???

Are they only available in this orientation?

I'd want to run it with an XT M732 thumbie, and my brain wouldn't be able to comprehend using it the 'wrong'way... :oops: :oops:

Rapid rise is great - getting used to it is a pain & once you are there you will have to change all your bikes to RR

I've even fitted an XTR m960 to my flat barred roadie - although that was partly done just to wind up those that care about such things & it goes quite well with the Ultegra chainset too :lol:
