Very nice, I've been a gripshift fan since the srt-500's were top of the range.
The grey attacks are great I'm still running them on my modern bike. Fit a set of gore-tex cables and they will run for years with no maintenance.

Your entitled to you opionion fella, :) some people like them some people dont.. most of the time people dont really give them long enough, you need to adapt to using them, I used to think they were pants too , but after you give them some time and have changed the way you shift then they are ace..

I've been a fan of these for some time, and never had any shifting issues.. they are lighter, less moving parts,, easier if needed, to maintain.. all good attributes for a mountain bike shifter imho.. :)

Your doing the world a great service by keeping these awful things away from rideable bikes . I'd wait a bit longer and gather a few more before doing the trip to the tip , you don't want to have to throw them away too often .
