    Questions about SRAM Attack twist shifters

    1. In the specs for the SRAM Attack twist shifters, it says 8/9 speed. Can the same shifter be used for either 8 or 9 speed, or do they sell one specifically for 8 and one specifically for 9? It's my understanding that the cog spacing is different for 8 and for 9 speed, so I don't see how the same shifter could be used for both.

    2. It says Shimano 2:1 compatible. Does this include an early (1993-1994) XTR derailleur?

    1. there is a 8 speed version and a 9 speed version, they are seperate items

    2. yes, all Shimano MTB derailleurs except the new 10 speed Dynasys ones are compatible. An old XTR will work VERY well due to the stronger spring they had back then.
