I want one..doesnt seem TOO expensive either. Havent heard anything about them but Id be worried aobut the locking mechanism that keeps 1 from moving while the other is being used from going out over time.
hey i am thinking about getting one and i have a twist on my quad now, its great for the duns and larger tracks but when it comes to the whoops and tight turns i miss the thumb, so it is worth it or should i just get a thumb and change them when i got to the dunes it only takes like 5 min to change, thanks for the input
I used one recently for an endurance race and the thumb was noticeably stiffer than stock. That being said, if I was a casual rider I'd have probably enjoyed using the twist on some long rides. For racing I'll stick with thumb though. I've been doing it long enough that my thumb is pretty much indestructible!
It definately depends on what type of riding you are doing. If you are doing MX and tight trails, thumb only. If you are doing desert racing, this thing is a life saver. When I get in the long straights, I use the twist and give the thumb a break. When I get in the tight stuff, back to the thumb, and its rested.
Terry cable here as well. I love the thing. I found myself switching quite often too between the two. As for grips... I use OURY, check em out, they're SOFT and fairly cheap. I get the ATV Oury grips though and just punch a hole on the end (like with a pen or screwdriver) and blow air into them to get it over the twist throttle. Its easy to stretch out to get it started too.
