SRAM shifter and Shimano mechs?

Hazy memory about different pull ratios so the shifters and mechs not working together, the exception being that Shimano mechs work with the SRAM named shifters, Rockets etc, as they had the same pull ratio as Shimano but the numbered ones, X7 etc didn't.

Someone help and translate the above in to English.



Quite right buddy!

Sram ratio is 1:1, Shimano 2:1, but as you say, some sram shifters cater for this, eg the sram attack gripshift

:D

Double aaaarrrrggghhhh! Found a nice X5 mech with KCNC jockeys in my Box O Shite which I could've sold you, but you've gone the new shifter route!
