    Twist Shifters Question

    Hey Weight Weenies. I've read here before about a certain brand of twist shifters I've never heard of. Can someone enlighten me?

    You don't mean the SRAM Twist shifters, do you?

    No, different brand. I think a guy named Nino sold them?

    Are you thinking of the Nobu tuned Microshift twist shifters? Not likely worth the effort of finding them on ebay, that seems to be the only place they pop up from time to time. They didn't seem to have the greatest reliability from the posts in this forum.

    OK, thanks. I'll stick to some old Grip Shift.

    If you type in Luckynino on Google, you'll find him. Or, here's the link to the grip shifters.

    I bought a set, and wasn't very happy with their performance. The only thing they do well, is make your bike lighter. They look and feel like a set of dept. store shifters.
    I was happier and faster, by adding a few grams back on the bike, using sram twist shifters.
