    Shimano XTR M980 Shifter Brackets

    Does anyone have or know where I can get a hold of a pair of traditional clamp-type mounting brackets to go on my handlebars for the XTR M980 shifters?

    Nope, never did. I spoke with Shimano and they said they aren't really set up to sell them but he would give them to me for the low price of something stupid. I sold them and got shifters with the proper brackets.

    I just bought some hinged clamps from a company called Trickstuff, in Germany. They are really sweet actually, but not cheap.

    I want to do the same thing. I want to convert my XTR M980 I-Spec B Shift Lever Set (Left and Right) to a Band Clamp with Horizontal slide adjustment.
    Looking at the Trickstuff stuff. Are these the parts I need from Trickstuff?
