Forget everything you remembered about 1990's grip shift! The new SRAM XX1 twist shift is perfect! I honestly can't believe that people would want to run trigger shifters after trying these. My top 3 reasons to run twist are... 1) Hands and fingers never leave the bar to shift. You have 100% bar control and can even shift easily with a finger on the brake lever 2) Lighter than trigger and shifts are equally as clean...PLUS, you can dump all the gears at a moments notice. Also, there is less shifter body to worry about breaking in a crash. There is nothing hanging off the bars to get caught on during an accident and no thumb trigger to nail the top tube when the handlebars spin out over 90 degrees. 3) Look so cool!
One other myth about twist grip is that you'll accidentally mis-shift when you are cranking on the bars during a climb or descent...FALSE. You are not grabbing the shift part all the time, you are holding on to the outside grip instead. Never once have I accidentally "twisted" out a bunch of gears while riding.
I have some arthritis in my thumb that makes it hard to shift after 5-6 hours in the saddle. The grip shifting takes care of this. Also the ability to dump all the gears when cresting the summit of a climb is an advantage.
