1993 Marin Pine Mountain all original. Has DX cranks/rings coupled with early XT integrated shifters and mechs. 3x7. Shifters are past their best.

I have a NOS set of Gripshift SRT600 3x7. Late ‘90s parts.

I guess the rear will work fine, i’m wondering if the front shifting will work OK? Are the chainrings on DX similarly spaced compared to later ‘90s bikes?

I can’t physically check until i fly into UK in a couple of weeks time. Wanted to save time by sourcing some brake levers in the intervening period to facilitate Gripshift installation.

Anyone got a decent set of brake levers, ‘90s vintage, STX/LX/XT/Curve etc? Thx!

SRT600 are mid 90s GripShift, they'll work perfectly with DeoreDX and any similar Shimano setup.

Just double check they are seven and not eight speed that is all.
