    Sram trigger shifter mounts?

    My bike came with X7 triggers and elixir5s mounted on a matchmaker. I'm getting new brakes with new levers but the shifters are essentially mounted on the brake levers. When I remove my elixirs Ill lose my shifter mounts. I see the sram mounts for $15 apiece and they are all out of stock, is there a cheaper solution?

    Are there many bike shops in your area? It seems like the SRAM shifter mounts would be the kind of part that comes in an OEM kit, or gets removed from a bike when a shop performs an upgrade for a customer, and then get tossed in a drawer somewhere.

    I had an unused set lying around when I upgraded from X7 to X0 shifters, but I later swapped out my Avid brakes for Shimano, and had to mount both the shifters and brakes on separate clamps.

    You could also look into Mismatch Adapters, if you're using Shimano brakes and SRAM shifters: Problem Solvers

    They're not cheap. You could possibly buy a set of X7 shifters on eBay and cannibalize them for the clamps for less than what the Mismatch adapters will set you back.

    Called the LBSs they wouldn't admit to having any of the clamp rings hanging around but offered to order me some for $22 apiece. I think this is a sign that its time to get the twist shifters I've been wanting.
