    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.

    http://www.bikerumor.com/2010/06/10/...new-dh-cranks/

    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...

    Me and a friend of mine are using twisters for quite a while now und both of us don`t upgrade to 10speed until there are xx-twisters available. Just ordered a new 9speed xtr cassette in order to use it with my x.0 RD, twisters and my new xx-spidered Specialized cranks.

    10 speed twisters needed! Or else I probably go shimano in future or stay 9 speed for as long as possible, shimano not better than trigger but cheaper here.

    the irony is that this is the case with their own Elixir levers at least in the carbon version and part of the reason I got rid of the brakes and not the Gripshift.
    Anyway, I'm all for continuing in the Gripshift tradition so count me in.

    I ride Gripshift since the early - mid 90'th. Tried some STI's, Rapidfire, Dualcontrol and Triggers and come always back to Gripshifters, so please Sram: continue with Gripshifters!

    I've been using GripShift since the early 90's. I'm finally getting a new bike soon that will have a 2x10 X0/X9 setup. I'll try to get used to the triggers, but will probably switch to twist shifters if/when they are available.

    SRAM,
    Are you starting to get the BIGGER picture?
    Example: (After market units)

    No grippers = 5000 front / rear dérailleurs / chains and cassettes not being sold..
    No grippers = 25,000 front / rear dérailleurs / chains and cassettes not being sold..

    How about 100,000 10 speed groups not being sold,
    all because you wont do 10 spd grippers..

    Sure, it's your call...

    PS. And don't forget about your cranksets

    Here-here. If there are no 10sp twisties I will delay switching to a 10sp drivetrain as long as possible.

    I plan on switching to 10 speed sometime soon (1x10 ). No gripshift = no sram for me.
    Shimano triggers are nicer, IMO.

    Look people, a hundred people on mtbr isn't enough demand for them to tool up to offer twist-grip shifters for 10 speeds. The 9speed versions sell poorly as is, the last thing they want to do is lose more money on another version. The only reason SRAM ever got sales for gripshifts in the first place (because compared to shimano, the things sucked until after they bought Sachs out and got their shifter designs and tooling) was because shimano stopped offering seperate shifters and brake levers. Once shimano began offering seperate shifter pods again, gripshift sales began falling. And that's why SRAM had to respond and did so with their rapidfire-like shifter pods.
    I don't post to generate business for myself or make like I'm better than sliced bread

    Well, I am going to chime in and say the same as many here. 10 speed twisties need to happen. Just make them at the XX level and no where else as the current offerings all weigh the same anyway.

    I will not go 10-speed until this happens. I will hoard all the 9-speed stuff I can and hold out.

    You want SRAM to offer it, offer to pay for the tooling yourself and personally guarantee the 10,000 units or so that they'll need to move to justify the effort.

    It's not about the tooling cost because they do plan to release them. It's more the fact that they don't want to rush them onto the market without them being an improvement on the current 9 speed design. They want them to work better, be lighter and be smaller. This thread isn't needed. They know there's demand. They just aren't ready yet.

    How many times has this ever happened with a new/modified product? Maybe zero?

    I wish Shimano had taken this approach with dual control/rapid rise! I might still be using Shimano.
