Nice one Chris.

Newer ones do look better, but I miss the functionality of the rockers.
Just got a set from eBay that I'm going to try and fit, although I've heard the newer ones have a slightly smaller base than the old, so it may not work.

Definately! The new ones do look better and have perhaps a more positive 'click', although it is a little plasticky.

The push/pull paddles were far easier to reach and being able to change up and down with either hand is much much better.

I seem to struggle to change down whilst turning now, whereas when the push button was effectively on the front of the wheel it was dead easy
