Retro-shift in da house

I'll bet you haven't seen these......downtube shifters grafted onto brake levers. Some really clever guy up in Portland is selling these cyclocross specific units. Think of it, less than half the price of the ones from the big companies and probably much more resistant to any kind of failure due to mud and water. I have not ridden them very far yet but I'll be trying them in the mud very soon...perhaps tomorrow. Go watch the vimeo on the retroshift to see it in action.

Paul. Two things. Today's Cat A race here in Portland was won by Eric Tonkin on a bike equipped with RetroShift! Also please note product not available for another couple of weeks as we still. Red to get parts laser engraved and assembled.
