After searching and not really finding any info I was wondering if anyone modified a front 685 shifter for 1x? I didn't get a chance to get a good look under the covers but I wanted to remove the shift mech and drop down gear lever and be left with only the brake lever. I was going to just remove the cable but it looks like I could drop some weight from the lever by removing the shift mech and make it look alittle cleaner.

It will still be a heavy shifter

Sram red were very easy, the 685 lever looks like its possible but a lot more playing around and alittle filing here and there to make it look smoother but I doubt it would go back together if I needed it later on. Heavy is an understatement.
