    New question here. best shifter for rapid-rise 970 rear derailleur

    Thanks in advance, I've got a 970 low-normal rear derailleur (rapid rise), and have been told that the new 970 shifters might not work, supposedly non-reverse shifting (whatever that means) ?!

    Anybody out there have any suggestions on the best shifters to go with this rd? I've got an xt up front...

    Thanks again

    Not sure where you got your info from, but it is incorrect. All Shimano shifters will be compatible, even the old 7 and 8 speed stuff. The only shifters that will not work are the SRAM X series, they pull twice as much cable, get the Rocket or Attacks if you decide to go SRAM
