Spare 1992 Cinder Cone built up for occasional commuting duties (time/weather permitting :roll: ) Mix of original Suntour XC Ltd plus Dia Compe brakes and stx rear derry. All works fine. Not sure about the flexistem - feels weird.
This is the only bike I have with thumbies on, everything else is fitted with trigger shifters.
Pictured on maiden voyage today :D

You need to tilt the thumbies round the other way (front higher than the back) then you'll be able to push them easier...
