Haven’t ridden the latest Eagle ones, as I did mention twist shifters and wide bars suck as a combination, and there’s also the fact bikes don’t come stock with them and none of my bikes currently run SRAM, but in my brief experiences with gearbox options the SRAM twisters I’ve used offered a significantly more positive feel. I road twisters for years (multi-click front actually had perfect Shimano 9-spd detents and cost ~ nothing when I was broke) and I couldn’t understand all the whinging about Rohloff; then I tried one... Anyways, it’s moot. There’s no doubt the lack of a trigger setup is one of the barriers to getting folks to try Pinion and, as noted, a big part of what I love about my Alfine setup is the Multi-Release trigger shifter.
