I've got 2 bikes with Avid levers/BB discs/XT thumbsfifters and 1 with Sram 9.0 V's/gripshift. I am able to set my brake levers far enough inboard to have the end of the lever line up with my index finger. This gives my 1 finger maximum leverage for good braking. My brakes are also setup Euro style.
I was thinking of trying the new Sram X9, so I went to the shop and had a look. When I put the X9 shifters and some brake levers on a bar they will only go on with the brake lever outboard which is way too close to the grip for my liking.
Are thumbshifters and twisters my only options?
