I am going to do this, I have a set of LX shifters, and a set of NEW XT shifters, I wanted the instant release of the new XTR but like many others I am not a fan of $250 shifter sets that are still not available (unless you buy a $4500 new bike) and might have a problem with too many features (double release shifting).
So my goal of the day/week/whatever is to make either my LX or XT shifters do the instant release of the new XTRs. I'm going to be taking tons of pictures and hopefully I can do it without any new parts, but I have a feeling its going to be like converting a semiautomatic assult rifle to fully automatic, sometimes you just have to buy one part, or file off some little pin.
Any help from anyone is appreciated. First round of pics are coming up today.
OUT OF THIS
and some help from you guys
