    Sram with Shimano?

    I am building up a bike and need some advice...

    I have heard there may be issues with how stuff fits together on the handle bars... shimano shifters always fit nicely with shimano brakes. Do I need to be concerned about building out a kit with SRAM shifters and shimano brakes? What about with shimano shifters and avid brakes?...Will avids and shimanos tightly align on the bars? Does it come down to individual models?


    I know the rear derailuer needs to match the rear shifter. I am really asking about getting the feel optimum on the bars.

    I have SRAM X0 shifters and Shimano XT brakes. They fit side-by-side on the bar without any problems. I need to snap some photos, for insurance purposes. I could post one soon, if you're interested.
