Is that Sram MRX
Pro shifters on there, by any chance? It seems like all the MRX stuff I see is for Shimano cogsets. If they are in fact MRX shifters, choose the Shimano System compatible (make sure it says that under the picture)
triggers with the appropriate number of speeds (sorry no 6-speed, but 7,8 and 9 are there) from this page
or choose the appropriate Shimano triggers from this page.
The cogset is the pivotal part you'll need to match the shifters to.
If the cogset is Shimano, you'll need Shimano or Shimano compatible Sram Shifters.
If the cogset is Sram it could either be Sram shifter only OR it could be Shimano or Shimano compatible Sram shifters you'll need.
