Product Description

The shifter and brake lever are so close together; why can't they share the same mounting bracket.

Date Reviewed: October 22, 2008

Strengths:    Looks tidy and integrated, possibly saves weight, conserves handlebar real estate.

Weaknesses:    Left side clamp has broken twice in similar situations; handlebar was whipped around 180 degrees in an endo and the front mech cable pulled tight, snapping the mount.

Bottom Line:   
The matchmaker mounts came stock on the Giant Reign X0. However in-service use for me has demonstrated they are unsuitable for this bike and the type of riding the bike is designed for. They would be great for XC use or light trail work only!
