Interesting, I always liked the shifting of the Suntours you listed, and used many of them. But in my experience their weak point was durability. OTOH I don't think I'll live long enough to ever wear out a DuoPar. Mine are all the Ti version, which may have something to do with it.
BTW Tonight I'll be leading a moonlight ride for Hiawatha Cyclery. The only on topic parts on the whole bike will be Suntour BarCons, a B-66 and a Ti DuoPar.
