Date Reviewed: January 27, 2009

Strengths:    Good, cheap, reliable.

Weaknesses:    sight windows are kind of a joke.

Bottom Line:   
These shifters work pretty good for a lower priced shifter. I upgraded my bike to 9spd and needed new shifters. I wanted to stay with twist shifters and not spend alot... these were my choice and I am satisfied with them so far. Although there is no rocket science to twist shifters these seem to be pretty solid and of good quality. Works well with Shimano XT rear deraileur too.

Where to find 3x9 SRAM Attack twist shifters?

Does anybody know where I can buy these? Every store reports being out of stock. Have these been discontinued? (I'd like run them with my XT/XTR/Saint rear derailleurs.) Thanks in advance.Read More »

Questions about SRAM Attack twist shifters

1. In the specs for the SRAM Attack twist shifters, it says 8/9 speed. Can the same shifter be used for either 8 or 9 speed, or do they sell one specifically for 8 and one specifically for 9? It's my understanding that the cog spacing is different for 8 and for 9 speed, so I don't see how the same ... Read More »

SRAM Attack twist with Shimano LX Rear Deraileur - good combo?

I'm building a bike up for my wife. She is a twist shifter fan. I am planning on getting SRAM Attack twist shifters and mating it to my spare LX Rear Deraileur. Is this a good combination? What is the difference in shifting effort of the 1:1 SRAM ratio to the Shimano/SRAM 2:1 combo?Read More »

SRAM Attack twist shifter- spring tension

has anyone tried to make the"click" of their twist shifters less, "clicky?" Its a very loud and pronounced click, requiring a rather forceful twist, rather than a soft, easy click, like on my old Attack shifters (pre-SRAM). Even after hundreds of miles, it has not changed at all...Read More »

Twist shifter performance- X0/X9 vs Attack/XT

Choice to make in regards to XO Twist shifters to X9 rear Derailleur or stick with the XT rear derailleur that I currently run with the Attack twist shifter. I've run the rockets wit the XT rear but I really don't like the shape of the grip for the rockets. Performance wise, I thought it was fine. ... Read More »
