....just wanted to say how impressed I am with this set up, was a bit sceptical at first. Running mine with an M900 front mech and a modern XT rear with a 9-speed block. Shifting is well on par with modern XT triggers although I feel it's not as good as an SRAM X.0 set up. Some nice snappy shifting, lovely!

Just in case anyone else out there is looking at this shifting system.


Lee.

Well, if you like SRAM you can buy the RED 10s bar end shifters and couple them with the Paul-SRAM perches...

Thumb shifters are still the best way for me to change gears. Thanks to Pauls fancy his V brakes now.

Love the way they open wide for easy fitting 8)
