    Paul Thumbies vs. VO Thumb Shifter Mounts on BD

    Looking at using one of these set-ups w/ Shimano bar end shifters and a titec h-bar on my BD. Curious if others have thoughts on either one, I couldn't find any comparisons.

    I'm running a set of Paul mounts on my tandem, and a set of Paul-like hinged mounts I got from Jeff Jones on mt dummy. Both are excellent, and I think the Paul's are hinged now as well. The only issue I've had is a slight loosening of the bolt that mounts the shifter, a quarter turn of the wrench every couple of months takes care of it. Some blue loctite will go on next time I have it apart.

    A bulletproof setup, IMHO.

    For shimano bar end shifters I would go with Paul thumbs.I have a set of Vo friction shifters and the vo thumbs for my setup on my BD I have pics of it so just look at my pics they work great for me.

    Love the Paul's

    I'm currently using them on my Dummy as well as my 26in wheel LHT. I have them set up in the friction mode and they are completely bomb proof. Set the limit screws and your off and rolling.

    Easy peasy.
