    Retroshift. Goat powered.

    retroshift | Mud Proof Shifting. Designed by Goats!

    First Look! Retroshift Brake & Shift Levers for Cyclocross - Bike Rumor

    Good for privateers who can't afford to replace shifters after repeated crashing / mudding. I don't think it'll set the world on fire, but it's a neat hack, and I'd palp them on my Rawland if I could neaten the cable run.

    Nice idea indeed.

    The video on the bike rumor link is pretty good - super fast down shift through all the gears.

    goats are funny/crazy ... and they get really smelly as they get older.

    These things look f'ing awesome for all kinds of applications - be great for a tourer so you can change whilst climbing loaded.
