Decided to update my XC bike, going from 1x10 Di2 custom mech to 1x 11 with an XT Di2 mech, tried an XTR shifter but didn't like it and with a dropper post as well the bars got a bit busy so decided to try a more integrated looking cockpit.

Sram gripshift LH gutted shifter does the dropper post activation, modded the fork lockout remote to act as the clamp for the gripshift, and a Custom RH shifter for the rear mech, ended up as just the gripshiter shell since trying it rotating just didn't work out, as it shifted too easily.
To shift you just nudge the yellow buttons with your knuckles, thumb knuckle on the rear most one to shift down, index finger knuckle on the front one to shift up. The switches are wired up to my old Alfine Di2 electronics module gutted and mounted inside the Gripshift housing, With a road junction 'A' strapped to the bars and the battery attached to the bar end plug and laying inside the bars.

Other updates are a Syntace stem, Maxxis Ardent tyres, Sunrace 11 speed 11-40 cassette and the Raceface turbine dropper post.

Weight is a respectable 10.28kg. not bad with decent tyres and a dropper post.

BIG time ingenuity (and a sharp Scott Scale frame :thumbup: )


I think I’ll switch out my XO 2x10 in favor of eTap Eagle when the time comes. The simplicity of a single der is awfully intriguing just as you’ve demonstrated here.

Love the ingenuity of this, Great looking bike too, I have a Di2 Climbing switch and battery languishing in the garage, now with current Xtr coming down in price, could be the time for some experimenting on my Scale .
