Wow loads of great comments that have much to commend them...I can rule out electric gears...my only issue to bar end shifters is that I use a bar end mirror but I can get round that with a Bike Eye.
Belgian Cat (I love the name) is right about being in touch with my retrogrouch.
Matter of taste...nah not going total friction...front mech is friction but sticking with indexed rear gears...be it STI, DT or bar end...I have never had issues with DT...and I go on one maybe two long trips...most if my cycling is local with panniers...mostly a couple of hours.
Oh it’s indexed. Sunrace m90 innit. Only friction for the fd. You know, for infinite trim. Compact crankset means I’m either in climb mode or flat mode so bar shifting for fd is overkill.
