The IRD thumbies look very similar to the microshift ones - the lever especially looks exactly the same. Do you know if the IRD levers have a friction option?

And can anyone point me in the direction of the XC Pro diagram?

some quick googling has found me this:

http://euphras.blogspot.com.es/2011/10/ ... index.html

there might be more info out there. it looks like the only thing needed for 9 speed conversion is to make another cam plate. I can't be sure without seeing one myself, but maybe the existing cam plate could just be turned over and drilled on the other side? Some careful calculation and drilling would be needed, but I reckon it should be possible to do.

Any volunteers? :lol:

Took me a while to find it, but here:

Although it did occur to me; the price I'd have to pay for NOS, or good condition XCpro shifters... not that much cheaper...?

+1 for SJS mounts with Dura Ace bar-end shifters. Rock solid.

As I see it there are 4 options:


Are Sram shifters Sram mech specific?

Ta. :D


I couldn't get the SRAM to work with X0 rear mech. Had to go roadie.
Perhaps me?


Both need to be 10 speed specific to work :wink:
