SRAM Pictures

Can someone, or hopefully more than one person who has sram twist shifters (x.9 or x.0 would be perfect) take a few pictures of your handlebars? I am trying to setup my brake levers and shifters and am not sure exactly how far they needed to be twisted on the handlebar. thanks a lot!

Put the levers on. Then the GripShifters. The adjusting barrel on the GripShifters goes under the levers. Then put your choice of grips on and butt the Gripshifters up against em', position the brake levers /gripshifters by rotating them on the HB to suit your riding and volia'. It's not rocket science. They only go on one way. Positioning only varies by the length of the grip you use.

Make sure that your levers sit at a 45 degree forward and down angle

Make sure your levers sit so that they're comfortable for you.

There's a reason I said it the way I did sparky.
A lot of times people will put them straight out from the bars which isn't a safe place for them as you have to rotate your fingers up and over them which adds time. Instead of being able to reflexivly grab the brake you have to add additional movements and actions.

Sram Site
Preetty sweet looking derailures for the x0's however it looks like a lot of crud could build up in the rear one.


Shifter
