I am changing the shifters on my kids Kona and am thinking of putting on SRAM grip shifters and have a couple of questions:
1) Which (x7, x9, x0) work best with smaller hands (or do grip shifters in general work better for small hands, since you don't have to reach?)
2) what are the disadvantages, if any to grip shifters vs. SRAM trigger? I have never used grip shifters but am thinking of trying them on my 575 2x9 set up. Sometimes it pains my right thumb to use the indexer, it's an old injury that sometimes bothers me.
A concern I have with grip shifters is that when landing drops/jumps it looks like you can easily shift unintentionally, is this a problem? I can't seem to recall seeing any FR bikes with grip shifters, always trigger shifters. Maybe I've just never noticed.
