I could never get used to grip shift.

If a "pull" of the cable is needed in both directions, would left and right trigger shifter thumb paddles work if geared correctly?

Bryceland summed it up in his retirement vid. Sure, 29ers will be faster when you open up the tracks like they did at MSA this year, but do you really want to watch 80 guys bomb a ski hill at not be able to tell who's going 70km/hr or 80km/hr? How many ... more »

Both very slick bikes! Nitpick, ...you mean cranks rotated?

So smooth without the lower pulley. More small bump and less chain feedback!

Yes a bit of that Pudskies.

A full spike is usually not needed unless it's total a mud bog. The tall knobs tend to float and wiggle on rocks and fold in hard packed corners. When cut to an optimum height the open tread design with lower center knobs bites into the soft, slippery dirt well..

Trail bikes are longer, more stabile and the cross over between DH and enduro parts are pretty similar. Everything about the bike has gotten significantly better in the last 5 years. So in general, people feel more confident in their equipment and can ... more »

If you need to use grip shift for the pull of the cable in either direction, and you need two cables, why not replace the grip shift with a left and right thumb paddle shifter?
