    Shifter as Dyad remote

    I'm about to go 1x10 on my Jekyll and wanted to look into my options for a Dyad travel adjust remote given the newly available cockpit real-estate. Jerome Clementz controls his Dyad using a gripshift, and I'm wondering if I'd have similar success using the XT M780 2x10 trigger front shifter currently on my bike. This would be a pretty easy thing to test out but I wanted to see if anyone has done it.

    I've been thinking about this since I saw that video with Jerome Clementz bike too. I think as long as it pulls enough cable to engage short travel mode you would be fine. The shock pulls the cable back when you put in flow mode.

    I think it should work (unless Jérôme's shifter is modified internally), front derailleurs pretty much all have a similar cable pull ratio (I've mixed and matched many different models/brands/mtb-road front derailleurs and shifters and all the combos I have tried worked).

    I just installed a grip shift I bought on Ebay for ten bucks to control the Dyad on my Claymore. It works flawlessly and now the cockpit is much cleaner. New cockpit - Imgur

    Did you have to modify the shifter at all? Does the cable end fit to the internals of it?

    I didn't have to modify the shifter at all. I just bought a new shifter cable, and plugged one end into the grip shift, and the other fits right into the top of the Dyad shock. It took just a little bit of adjustment to get the tension just right, but afterward it worked flawlessly.

    Bought a gripshifter on ebay and some short ODI grips. I don't mind the DYAD lever but I feel like this will work better.

    Dear all, do you need a front shifter or a rear 10/11 shifter?

    Thanks
