Specialized Rockhopper Comp Disc 29 - Switching shifters?
I have an 09 Specialized Rockhopper Comp Disc 29 that I got back in June. I've been riding it as much as I can but all the other bikes I've owned have had the Shimano Rapidfire style shifters - where you use the thumb and index finger to shift up and down.
The new bike, has "SRAM X-4, 8-speed trigger" - which uses the thumb for shifting up and down. I've tried to get used to it, but I just can't - I prefer the other style. The rear derailleur is a "SRAM X-5, med. cage".
I've been looking at replacing shifters, but can't seem to find which SRAM shifter I can use to replace the ones I have - if SRAM does in fact make one like I'm after.
Can someone point me in the right direction?
