    Hope Tech X2 brakes....with trigger shifters?

    Hey all,

    A couple weeks ago I broke both my brakes after an OTB in Pisgah. I decided it was time to replace my old hayes HFX instead of repair.

    I found a smokin deal on the Hope Tech X2's from a UK shop. They showed up today & took em for a ride. These things are sweet, except they don't sit well with shimano lx trigger shifters.

    I remember seeing something about "matchmaker" brackets or something??....anyone have any insight?

    Thanks

    Matchmaker is for SRAM, I don't think it would fit slx

    Hope make Matchmaker clamps for XT shifters as well not just SRAM ones.

    OTB in Pisgah....that's always fun.

    JensonUSA has the clamps in stock.

    Enjoy the new brakes - once you go Hope, there is no need to try any other; IMHO.

    Thanks guys.
    I'll get the clamps if that's what will make these fit better.

    I read that the shift indicator windows might be able to be removed, but mine are LX not XT so I think I would have to fab up a cover?....
