Yes, chinq makes a shifter conversion with two individual levers and instinctiv.bike has a own lever (but not selling it separately). Thing with the lever is that you can only shift two gears at once. Rumors are going on that Pinion could release a electronic/wireless shifter later this year.

Hey, not 100% sure what you mean about "weight of the pinion". The complete bike is about 1kg heavier than my old bike but I dont think that makes a difference. The gearbox itself weights around 2300g. What you really can feel is that the weight is more centered when you jump and the suspension performance is amazing. The most thing I love of the bike till now is the silence. With onyx hub and Belt drive you can drop to flat with only hearing the suspension work. For the gripshift I´m still not sure. I think the ergonomics are okay. I changed the shifting direction so that my index finger slides forward over the brake lever while shifting down which works very well and I already hate that I have to lift my thumb to shift on my Hardtail. When it comes down to shifting itself thats a little more of an challenge. Upshifts work well and you can shift a lot of gears (not all) under load but the downshifts need to be timed very accurate. Got stuck more than once on a steeper climb. You relly need to take off the complete load for a very small time. I figured out that bes for me works to give a little pressure on the shifter and the I only have to time the pedal interrupt. To be fair I dont have that many miles on the thing right now and i think/hope that will be muscle memory in a few weeks. Oh, what I also really love is that I´m able to shift while coasting or standing.Hope this helps a little. Cheers
