Very solid brakes, but not as powerful as my R1's. I have a set of these on my Santa Cruz TRc and want to integrate the shifter and brake like on my XX's. Anyone seen any hardware to do this?

I am using both Shimano XTR Race Brake M985 and XTR shifters. From that document, I don't see where the shifters integrate with the brakes using only a single mount?

Just like I told him.


These brackets attach directly to the brake clamp

Yeah what he said... Look at the center box on the tech doc. Item number 7 is the bolt and nutsert that slips into the brake lever mounting band/clamp. Swap out the top of the shifter, remove the brake lever mounting bolt, push the safety button and swing the clamp open, put the nutsert in the band, close the clamp, tighten the brake lever clamp then attach the shifter to the clamp and tighten.

I see it now, thanks everyone! $82 is a lot of dough for 10mm of extra handlebar space!
