I'm sorry it took so long guys, life got in the way. Finally sat down for the writeup and publish tonight. Video on the way.

That looks really awkward to use
>>
>>1272907
Only downshifting is awkward actually, beats going to the drops to shift imo. The bike had near-stem bar shifters at first which my knees would hit when out of the saddle.
>>
>>1272905
You printed your own bars too? Isn't that kinda sketchy?
>>
>>1272927
No they're just plain alloy

That would be funny but I think the dia compe came out middle of last year

I think I posted about these in February or March last year, it looks like these came out in the summer.

Well these shifters are like $3 max if you have a printer or a friend with a printer and can find junk bikes for free

Whole bike was stolen, this is the poster with the Denali if anyone remembers

That's when Riv was originally going to launch theirs (clones of pic related), which was being made in conjunction with DC.
>>
>>1273003
Holy shit $200 for friction shifters
>>
>>1273039
Man... I've had a few of those. They ratchet, sure. I've seen the rants about how great they are. Fact of the matter is that friction shifting with your thumb just sucks.

I've had better luck with upside-down mounting so you can use thumb and index while still touching the handlebar... But it's still not great

Rivendell is taking heat recently, maybe for good reason.

OP here, I designed the shifters because I was cheap AF at the time, but now I have a pair of these on the way.

Great way to disconnect yourself from your drivetrain like a true casual

>this is the poster with the Denali if anyone remembers
ahh now I remember this anon. Did OP ever managed to solve the issue with the cable digging into the shifter?
>>
>>1273067
These are so very great for five or six speed errand runners, but indexed is better for high gear numbers and sport applications.
>>
>>
oh shit, other 3d printing cycling anon here, this is dope. I made a mount in fusion 360 to put brifters on bullhorns because I have bad taste.

thought I was going insane thinking no one has ever toyed with these ideas before. I dig your style way more than the old school shifters on the end of the bar.
>>
>>1273121
For you. Velo orange guys friction shift 12 speed. It's actually better than 6 speed. The 12 SP chain is extremely flexible. Indexing is almost pointless at 12 SP. Only bikeforums boomers don't realize this. Ultra romance does it too

Yes, just reprinted with more infill and also acetone treated the plastic

Also not using a shitty derailleur with high return spring force helps
>>
>>1273153
Okay that is one sick GMC Denali

You got contact info?
>>
>>1273153
RIP goodest Denali. I remember that pybt of how heart broken you were when it was stolen. I hope lifes been treating you well anon, you didn't deserve that loss.
>>
>>1273157
kek PM me on thingiverse if you want

>>1273170
life's been great ever since, thanks for the kind words anon. I'm still fucking afraid to leave any bikes locked anywhere now though, even my beater, I have a GPS tracker from China I need to set up and test now.

Also video is done! You can see how shitty shifting to bigger cogs/chainring is but easy to dump the cassette for a sprint at least. Actually even with the awkward downshifting it's still probably faster to dump the other direction than clicking a brifter repeatedly.

As soon as Riv goes under I'm buying the brand and releasing a sexy af singlespeed e-bike. I'll call it "Quickbeam"
>>1273140
Ronnies rig is fucking awesome and I don't get why it's not a stock "buy this fucking thing now" config on Riv's site. Anyway 12sp friction close ratio would be a bit weird but for wide ratio shit like SRAM Eagle it's obvious imo.

Interesting, I thought Sensah was SRAM cable pull

>>1273540
Just the empire, maybe they went Shimano for 8 due to the vaaaaaaast majority of BSOs and starter bikes being Shimano 7

puss throws itself at him because he's e-famous , tho apparently he never had a problem pulling even when he was a cat 5 twink

Bene is alpha. you are pathetic dweeb incels. He used to race pro, now he lifts weights and smokes fucking weed while you probably dawn lycra every 2 weekends to strava with your rapha baby boy mommy wah wah googoo gaga shit

Meanwhile Bene was in a poly relationship basically touring around the country getting laid at every warm showers stop pissing on raw steel daily hitting the pipe and ripping trails, not a care in the world -- THEN when he felt like it he settled down because that's what MEN do. They don't post online talking shit because they're incel erectile dysfunction
