    XTR Trail BR-M988 with which SRAM shifters?

    Which SRAM trigger shifters would fit best with XTR Trails BR-M988 levers? I'm talking about mounting on the handle bar without getting in the way of each other. I'm set on getting the XTR brakes, but need to stick with SRAM shifters.

    Thanks....

    So long as you're talking triggers, not grip shift, they're all shaped pretty much the same so I doubt it really matters. Don't own, but have ridden a bike with the XTR trail levers and a Sram shifter (single front ring) and they seemed to play nice together, but I didn't pay any particular attention to setup, or what shifter it was.

    I edited my post to trigger shifters. Thanks. Yeah, as long as they play nice together is good enough for me.

    Anyone else out there with real world experience on how well they play with each other?
