    Good job! NEW "SHIFT: R" thumb shifters for your Rohloff.

    Well at last there is a new shifter from Cinq 5 it got two thumb levers one to shift up and one the shift down your gears.

    Who are Cinq5?
    Tout Terrain are spinning-off their accessory business under the new name Cinq5.

    I like the look and may have to just place an order and try them

    Doesn't look very knee friendly though - I'd dismiss it because of that alone.

    Look's the some as any STD mountain bike shifter made by any one of the Big S!
    I'll be ordering a set when I find some one listing them.
    I'm over the New Rohloff Shifters and liked the old Rohloff shifter because in the Mud it's too hard to change gears with the round shape.

    Pete .
    Not really, there are more sharp exposed corners, plus I don't like the way that there's exposed inner cable just waiting to get covered in crap.
    The whole thing looks more like a prototype rather than a finished production item, in my opinion anyway.

    I looked at them. Problem is they're expensive. They add about $300 to an already expensive build.
    I wanna build a rohloff but honestly it's hard to justify the cost over the entry-level Shimano kit, which is in real life is very good, and very pleasant to use.
