My current drive train of Hone cranks, 2005 XT Rear Derailure and 1995 XT thumb shifters have been in use for oh...6 years? The thumb shifters will be reliable for centuries, so they don't need replaced...but I haven't had triggers in ages.
The derailure is finally giving up the ghost, thumb shifters are nice but not compatible with everything, and the rings...who knows.
What's a good upgrade path if I still wanted to shift (aka no single speed) using my thumbies?
