My buddy Eric the Crow would stock pile XT thumbshifters.  Derailleur cage bent, hanger bent, you can probably tweek the derailuer with the friction thumby and still pedal.  Doesn't matter how many gears you have it will work.  Very few parts to fail or wear out. Light weight and simple.  Dave at NSSS gets very excited and loves to point out the virtues of the Microshift thumb shifters.  More for commuting but I'm game for perhaps trying on my mountain bike.  I bet it's smoother to shift into the massive pie plate we all run out back now. You control the amount of pressure pushing the chain up the cogs.  Very easy for you friends to grab your shifter and dump you into smallest cog for sh.ts and giggles.  Thanks for keeping it fresh.  I really need to see a review on why the Fox 36 is better this year! Even better than last year's or the year before that! Yes new and improved!
