    Rated 5 out of 5 by from a shimano classic Responsive and faultless the thumb shifter is easy to use and i love the button on the 6 speed for changing doun i quickly got used to these modern gears. Perhaps to bring an older bike a modern twist with a 6 speed mega gear are you struggling with those hills i no i was.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shimano SL-TX50 SIS Thumb Shifter Great shifters, perfect for children starting to learn how to use gears. Also great for those who possibly have difficulties with hand movement and standard shifters are difficult to use

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not very impressed Bought to replace a hopeless set of twist-grip shifters. These are better than those, but still disappointing. Only the rear wheel gear shift has a button to change down: the crank gear shift lever needs to be pulled to shift down, which is quite clunky and I always feel like I might break it. The kit also does not include any non-slip strips of rubber, and the holding screws need to be *really* tight to stop the shifter slipping when you use it. The metal for these screws is not very strong either, so the chances of ruining the screw head are quite high. On reflection, I wish I'd spent more for something better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shimano SL-TX50 SIS Thumb Shifter Really glad I decided to try these. SO much easier to change gear than the twist grip type. My 9 year old daughter never bothered changing gear because it was too difficult, but she's fine with these. Should be fitted as standard.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally transformed my bike! Got rid of the awful handlebar grip shifters and installed these. Really simple and they work well!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gear shifters I brought a Trax bike for my son twist grip gears were far too stiff for him to use so I replaced them with these gear shifters, now he can actually use the gears and is a lot happier riding his new bike shame they weren't fitted to the bike instead of the twist grips.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great improvement My Young boy was having trouble with shifting gears on his Trax mountain bike it had those twist grip type shifters he struggled and kept looking down to see what gear he was on or which way to shift them. Spoke to Ryan at Bridgend Halfords and he suggested changing to these What a difference now he can change up at the push of a button and down with a simple push of a lever Brilliant and at the same time Ryan serviced the bike and it now rides lovely Many Thanks Halfords.
