I have a Shimano XTR shadow rear derailleur - RD-M972-SGS. Im currently using XTR rapidfire shifters but would like to switch to gripshift to save weight. Would gripshift and Shimano der. work together?
From my point of view the Plasma's are not state of current technology. I ride these shifter 12 years ago (or more!). They are slower and not that precise as current Rockets or Attacks. They are only light.
With really simple tuning you get a Sram shifter also down to 161g. For only 8g I would never get these horrible performing yesterday shifters.
but it is also possible to add a small lever to the rear XTR deraleur (similar to speen, small bit of aluminium), it had to be 15 or 17mm length, I don't remember right now, that changes the ratio for the cage and makes possible to use a X0 shifter...
