    Upset Who makes twist shifters?

    What companies make twist shifters? I currently have a set of xt dual control levers/shifters, and i cannot stand them. I want to be able to grab and dump through my entire range in 1 motion
    I want a mid to high end twist shifter set for use with an 9 speed xt drivetrain. Sram has the xo but its for use with esp shifters, is there any other company in the world that makes them? I know the esp has shorter travel, so is there a company out there that has an pulley/adaptor that will allow the use of esp on shimano?

    Sram Attack

    Check into the Sram Attack twist shifters. I believe that they will work with a shimano rear deraileur. Cambria Bicycle Outfitters carries them and has more info for you. Hope this helps.

    Do your research about SRAM shifters. I think some of them will not work with Shimano Components.

    correct. Make sure you get the ones that say Shimano compatiable or a 2:1 ratio on it because Shimano rear Derailure run on a 2:1 while SRAM Rear derailure use a 1:1
