anyone actually tried making sram 1:1 stuff work with shimano? either sram der + shimano shifter or vice versa?
that bike shops won't sell the 1:1 sram with shimano shifters...the ratio of shimano is 2:1(or is it 1:2?) and mathematically it doesn't work. That shouldn' t stop someone who doesn't believe in math from trying though. :-)
i didn't quite understand what 1:1 meant, kept thinking "hey, the cassette is the same width, what's the deal?" but i think i realize now that the derailleur itself is designed with different motion geometry.
