What shifters are you using with your swept bars?Marys, titecs etc. Last piece of the puzzle for a build and can't make up my mind. Obviously its personnal preference but tell us anyway. From what I can pick up underbar rapidfire'y types can be problematic? any users?

I have not tried a mary bar or the ilk, however I always thought they would be sweet with thumbies. (preferably Pauls thumbie mounts and shimano bar end shifters).

Or for that matter...Bar end shifters!

Hmmm have a set of XT thumbies....also a set of 9spd dura ace barcons but no Pauls mounts. :? Also get on fine with gripshift too, I have them on a pair of Marys. I'm going to be running a 1X9 too not that it makes too much difference.
