I'm gonna try this setup:

SRAM gripshifter for the front der, and XT trigger for the rear der. Will be using XTR v-brake levers and wondering how its all going to mesh up...

anyone used this setup before? Did you like it? Have any photos?


(left wrist problem forces the change)

thanks.

Why would you use the gripshifter for the front derailluere?

When set up correctly, the Shimano trigger & front mech combo is far more accurate than the Sram gripshifter.

Shimano brake levers are designed to work specifically with shimano shifters. They'll still work with the Gripshifters, but for me they've never seemed to be able to sit in the correct position to hook the bend with my fingers.
