Sooooo, I converted a pair of 9spd DA bar end shifters to thumbies with the Pauls kit. But I can't for the life of me get it to index with an XT rear derailleur... Not only that, there seems to he a huge throw in the shifter between gears 3-4 or 4-5... So it's almost as if the indexing in the shifters is inconsistent. I would have thought the throw would be identical from 1 gear to the next. Do the road derailleurs (105-Ultegra-DA) use a different ratio than the mtn ones (I already know they don't, since you can easily use a road RD with mtn shifters... but I had to put it out there...) or are my thumbies NFG???
