    I'm still rocking Gripshifter.s, it's the only 8 speed Rapid Rise reverse pull shifter I can find. My XC bike also has a SRAM NX 11 speed Gripshifter on Shimano SLX deraillauer. It's the latest thing ya know.

    Whatever happened to Gripshifters? Replaced by a throttle? I put them on my first KHS mountain bike along with a bunch of other new fangled gear - like a Rockshox fork.

    Even the BBSHD is becoming Retro.
    But Front Freewheel. Rapid Rise, and Gripshifters with Avid BB7 cable brakes, are all seriously vintage stuff. But guess what? It all still works!

    Yes. Spell check malfunction. "dyed"
    So just what does ded mean on post #1 of this topic
    I assumed it was a joke and I couldn`t resist responding,

    ded--Webster has no definition. Spell check = deed-did-dad.
    Maybe you meant: proof that bar ends are died black with black plugs in the end of the bars.
    """"""""""""""""""---proof that bar ends & end plugs are painted black .

    Edit.. The newer Surron Ultra Electric dirt bike has a reverse option.
