    9 SPD Grip Shift used with 8 speed Cassette?

    I'm thinking about changing to Grip Shift. Right now I have a SRAM X-4, 8 speed trigger shifter and some day might up grade to a 9 speed cassette. If I use a 9 speed grip shifter right now would the last click not be used due to my derailleur not letting it shift into the last click?

    What grip shifter do you want to use? Why do you want to switch?

    No, the shift spacing is different. A 9 speed has 9 cogs in the same space as the 8 cogs of a 8 speed.
