    XX Brakes install question

    Just to satisfy my curiosity as I've sent these back.

    How do the XX brakes ordered in the link below connect to the bars?

    They did not come with any sort of clamp. Is there something integrated with XX shifters? I'm running XX1 so that doesn't work for me since I only have one shifter.

    My old Elixr CR's had a clamp that attached to the bar and then bolted to the brake lever. Seems like they just left that out (which makes no sense to me).

    I asked the nice folks at CC...but they couldn't seem to explain that too me.

    That attaches to a clamp band (included with the brake) or to matchmaker clamps for XX shifters. The retail brakes should come with the clamp band, but not the matchmaker clamp.
