    New question here. Avid Matchmaker X just for shifters

    Recently I bought a pair of Sram XX shifters but they came without handlebar clamps.

    I need a pair of clamps, and think to choice Avid matchmaker X to mount it but my breakset is Magura Marta SL (Not compatible with any kind of matchmakers).

    Is there any problem to use the matchmaker just for mount the shifters?

    These matchmakers x will resolve my problem, or is there any other simple solution?

    I would recommend buying the proper XX shifter clamps from your LBS. The matchmaker clamp will most likely interfere with your Magura brake lever mounting location.

    Buy standard XX clamps was my first choice, but it's very hard to find.

    If anyone has a pair or just right side, or known where I can find in USA, please contact me by PM.

    I'm pretty sure the clamps from other shifters such as X0 and X9 will also work. Did you call your local bike shop and ask? These parts typically aren't listed on bike shop websites. The SRAM parts list has these clamps listed.

    Hope this helps.

    Page 37 of the SRAM Spare Parts Catalog may have what you're looking for. They even have color options. Again, without the proper brakes, the Matchmakers won't have anything to clamp to.

    e.g.
    11.7015.033.020 Select X0 Trigger Clamp Kit Red Qty 1

    Your LBS should be able to order these for you. Good luck!
