Hi guys,

I've got some questions regarding trigger shifters for my graduation project. Would be really nice if you fill in the answers. Thanks in advance! :thumb:

1. What's the maximum price you're willing to spend on a high quality trigger shifter?
2. What's the most important aspect of choice if you're buying a shifter?
3. What's the maximum weight the shifter is allowed to have?
4. Do you prefer shifting only with your thumb, or with thumb and index finger?
5. Should the levers be adjustable?
6. What's the maximum allowed amount of time for changing a shifter cable, exclusive re-adjusting the mech?
7. Should the shifter have a (removable) indicator?
8. Should the shifter be allowed to be taken off the handlebar without removing any other components?

regards,
Loek

I hate surveys but my wife loves them.
She'll talk on the phone for hours taking one.
I'll let her know.
She doesn't ride but loves surveys.:)
