Hi all,

building a bike for the mrs, at the moment the hahanna we've got for her has deore rear mech, but she wants (in her words...) those twisty gear thingies...

Yeah I know...

So my question is will SRAM's gripshifts work with a Shimano rear mech? I know they used to BITD but what about the recent stuff...?


Cheers all!

Only Sram MRX and Attack grip shifters will work with Shimano rear mechs IIRC

Assuming you mean you want to buy brand new grip shifters

I'm not 100% sure which retro ones will work with Shimano

Thankyou...

Looks like a cheap SRAM rear mech and shifters will be cheaper!

Shimano's Revoshifts are waaaay better than MRX and don't cost much more if you hunt around.
