Is this possible? The new shifter arrived for my 11sp conversion, and it won't bolt up to that brake lever (I-spec A).

Does anyone make an adapter, or am I SOL?

TIA

Are you sure the brakes are ispec I. I'm going to guess you have the ispec II version of the shifters and I thought it was ispec B for the brakes.

I think this is what you need if that's the case: https://problemsolversbike.com/products/shifters-derailleurs/rematch_adapters

Double check the i spec version for each one and get another opinion to confirm though, I'm not 100% certain on this combo and I think there may have been I and B versions on the brakes depending on whether they were OEM ones.

Jestep, that is EXACTLY what I am looking for, thank you! I was on their page but only saw their mismatch adapters (Sram to Shimano, or visa versa). I didn't see that one, thank you!

Thanks for that.

I intend to move my Shimano brakes to the SRAM bike and add an upgraded Shimano brake to the Shimano bike.
I'd have had the same problem with mounting the new brakes to early Shimano shifters.

It won't be immediately, but I didn't know they also made Shimano/Shimano adaptors. Sweet!
