Sorry to aska stupid question, what are those levers? They are lovely.

Quite a bit different but second one looks better to me.

Very nice.

One question David...why do so many people in Germany ride Gripshift? Are you guys all motorcycle throttlehead want-to-bes? Just saying because it seems like 80% of all bikes posted and built up with Grip Shift seem to be in the hands of German riders/owners.

I much prefer gripshift as well, but it seems like everyone in england detests it.

I actually quite like the gripshift, being able to ramp it across the whole cassette is a massive plus.

i always found that gripshift performed like the weather. ifs its fine, the gripshift is fine. but if the weathers shitty, then look out. i quite like the benefits, as has been said you can go right across the cassette quickly, and they were bloody light. but as soon as it gets muddy, then the cables get sticky, and as soon as your hands get wet or muddy, then you cant grip it well enough to shift the seizing cables...


nice bike tho.

You think there's a reason SRAM has switched to this?

It's better....and the sale price is higher than grip sh_t at the OEM spec'ing level.
