    I need a front shifter!

    Hey all I blew up my second sram x-9 front shifter (the 3 speed), if anyone has an extra one laying around they want to sell, let me know! It doesnt have to be sram, just let me know what you have, thanks!

    Actually, I think it was Gary Fisher. But ask yourself this: have you ever seen Al Gore and Gary Fisher in the same room? Or, Al Gore and God in the same room for that matter.

    Pretty sure I have an x7 and I'm in Mesa. Willing to trade for a pull behind your boat. Been 4+ years since I've been wakeboarding and I'm making the assumption you have a boat based on your avatar

    4 years is way too long Matty! If I remember right you wake almost every weekend it seemed. Had more vids for wakeboarding than on your R6

    Naw!, Al Gore invented the Internet (sic); that is why it is so screwed up.

    I have a set of X9 front and rear triggers...pm me if interested. Used very little as I am not smart enough to figure them out. I went with twisties.

    Shifters online are pretty inexpensive!!!

    Just look online you can get some decent shifters for low price... I just got a new rear 8spd Shimano Alivio shifter for like $20.00....

    go to amazon just as a quick reference of prices and look up Shimano Alivio 8spd shifter SL-M410

    Just to show it on amazon, you can obviously buy from your vendor of choice!!! I'm not saying this is a top notch shifter cause i'm new to the MTB community, but to full fill a need that worked in my favor.
