    Shimano matchmaker equivalent?

    Bike is a 2013 Trek Stache with SLX shifters and brakes. I'd like to eliminate the shifter clamp if I can to make room for a dropper post actuator. Does shimano, or someone else offer a matchmaker equivalent? If so, which one do I need and where can they be sourced?

    Thanks!

    I think it's called I-spec or something like that. You might be able to find the part that converts your shifter pods to mount to the brake levers. I know XT and up has it for sure, not sure about SLX.

    SM-SL78
    Don't know if they're compatible with your shifter, but I think they are. They will work with your brakes though.

    SL-78 converter only works for XT, doesn't work for SLX shifters, you'd need to buy new SLX I-Spec shifters.
