hub is commin so i better work out the details.

gonna use a xt der and some kind of thumby. whats my best option. Paul has the thumb shifter mounts but is the big S my only option for a shifter? The shifter needs to be friction (1x4).

pumped for the new build. i have been wanting this kind of set up for a long time now!:thumbsup:

If you use 9 (or 8) speed cog spacing you can use an indexed 9 (or 8) speed shifter.

I added a 1mm spacer to 8 speed spacers and use an indexed 6 speed shifter.

Otherwise you can buy cheap ($10) friction thumb shifters.

All Thumbshifters Come With Bar Clamps

The Paul mounts are only for using Shimano bar end shifters as thumbshifters
