    SRAM trigger shifter ??

    I want to upgrade my X9 shifters IF the XO or XX shifters offer 2-way shifting for the upshift like my XTR shifters do. Do either of these shifters offer this?

    The adjustable postion of the paddles is a nice feature I want to.

    Thanks for the help.

    SRAM shifters are thumb push for both upshifts and downshifts. Shimano shifters can be push/push or push for upshifts and trigger finger pull for downshifts.

    I was a long term twist shifter guy. My bike got stolen in Aug and this forced me to make new decisions and changes. The biggest change was going to 29" wheels which I love, but also going away from twist and going to a more traditional shifter. I now have 2 bikes, one with SLX Shimano tiggers and the other with SRAM XO. I like both and would recomend either. Both have one clamp around the h-bar simplifying the clamp area, and both have a way to adjust the shifter seperate from the brake.

    Both bikes and drive trains are also the new clutch style rear der. Man, does that really make a difference on the 2x10 systems in terms of great shifts and little to no noise.
