today i installed a SRAM Rocket Gripshifter for my front derailleur, opting to keep my trigger for the rear. i quickly ran into a snag of not being able to put my brakelever within reach of my grip on the left side... but if i ran it symmetrically it'd be weird on the right side, with the brake lever a good inch from the right hand grip. so, my dilemma is, is it weird to run brake levers at different distances from each bar end?

Like having one oar in the water...

You gonna go round and round in circles;)

Twist shifters on both sides are actually very nice. To tell ya the truth, I get all confoozed and run into trees n'stuff when I get on a friends bike that has triggers...them things are too complicated for me:madman:!

Yes, it is very weird to have your levers at different distances from the bar ends. Short term effects include ridicule and derision. Long term effects are a misalingment of the shoulders and spine requiring corrective surgery.

You should discontinue this practice immediately.

Just move your right lever to the same distance from the end of the bar as your left shifter. I run the twist/trigger set up and did not have a problem.
