Definitely squeeky bum moment, on the plus side though blipping on downshifts has improved.
Quickshifters and blippers are awesome. End of. This is the same argument that people had regarding certain daily use tech. Eventually it becomes the norm; it's also a natural progression as far as I'm concerned. Almost like hydraulics on Bicycles.
I understand the argument for 'purity' and all that marlarky, and as a bit of a luddite, I don't care much for the whole spectrum of electronics in modern bikes, but those two, especially quick shifters, really are pretty awesome and make riding that bit better.
Next bike will have a quick shifter for sure as it really enjoyed using it.
Also, your bike is distressingly clean. I hate you.
Okay I'm starting to come round to quickshifters, really though think I just need to try one on a fast bike. That's fine, it's a garage-queen for sure and I'm very lucky.
