Default Re: Has anyone tried these thumb throttles?

I've got one and LOVE it. It feels much more solid than the cheap plastic twist throttles.
I think I posted some info on another thread but a few bits of advice. 1) IDK what type of threaded adapter is supposed to be used to attach to the housing and neither did the vendor. You will need to grind it a bit to get a traditional bike barrel adjuster to seat in there. Just use a dremel and check the work. 2) you will need to make a new throttle cable. I used a brake cable and followed Norman's post. Once the cable is hooked into the thumb throttle, I made an end for the slide with 49mm of cable from end sheathing to end of formed end.
