I have sold three pairs if standard xt thumbs in the last year...and regretted it so when searching the bay of filth came across these shiny fellows and had to have them! I hate polishing and the chap that took time to do these made a very nice job indeed....chaps...get polishing :-)

Nice job, and to maintain the polished I usually apply a transparent varnish for metals.

You've just made the difference to a build I was struggling with on the "What shifters shall I use dilemma" Nice work. :wink:
