    WANTED: 10-Speed GripShift XX / XO (i.e. GripShift, the origins of SRAM)

    WANTED: SRAM – please make a 10-speed XX/XO GripShift. GripShift is the cornerstone of SRAM. If you abandon it for triggers only, you’re basically saying the Big S was right all along. TWISTIES Please....

    Hoping for a reveal at Interbike 2010.

    [Yes I know there is a guy in Europe converting 9-speed XO GripShift to 10-speed....but I want the real thing]

    Me too.

    I know the mfg's do not spec bikes with twist shifters, but seems like a big aftermarket audience. Can't believe it is that hard to alter the throw length on twist shifters to make them work.

    This seems like an everybody wins situation if they come out with twist shifters.

    I have only seen one quote from SRAM on this, and it was they are Not going to bring out 10speed twist shifters. Not enough demand and incompatible with some brake levers.

    Hope they are reversing that statement, but have not seen anything to indicate that.

    Without a link to this statement, it's totally worthless...

    SRAM Press Camp Rumors #2 and #3 - Ten Speed Twisters and new DH Cranks
    posted by Tyler (Editor) - June 10, 2010 - 10am EDT

    "Ever since SRAM came out with trigger shifters, it seems they’ve been slowly putting more emphasis on them with OEM placements and now with the 10-speed systems. I asked why the new 2×10 groups went solely with trigger options, and here was the response:

    “You’ve gotta start somewhere,” says Chris Hilton, SRAM product manager. “Triggers are an extremely precise system, they integrate really nicely with the brakes, particularly with our Matchmaker set up, and the ergonomics and adjustability are really good.”

    Of course, there are those of us that long for top-level twisters to make a comeback, and there are top pros like Julien Absalon (pictured, older photo when he was still running twisters) that, as Hilton put it, have “requested, not demanded” them. So, are they coming? So far, comments around the press camp indicate so, ranging from:

    “They’re aren’t any out in the wild. Well, not any you’re going to see.”

    “It’s something that’s in the works.”

    …and similar such things. No timeline so far, but we haven’t had the first real tech session yet either."

    ..................................................

    it's time to deliver the goods Chris Hilton - we're waiting...
