    Twist Shifters for Skyhawk?

    I'm about to buy a Skyhawk for my son but I know he would prefer twist shifters to the triggers. Will the Sram 3.0 Twist Shifters (8 speed set) work? I'm 99% sure that's the right choice... Just want to make sure.

    Thanks!

    As long as those are 1:1 ratio shifters, they will work. I believe the ESP's are 1:1. Dont for get you'll need to cut the grips down, or get some for use with Grip-shift. Any reason why your son would like these better? The X4 triggers are great, and IMHO much more durable than the grip-shift.

    +1 on using the trigger shifters instead of the twist ones. I would recommend letting your son use the trigger shifters to see if he could get use to them.
