    "Specialized" Gripshift compatibility with XX rear derailleur?

    Hi,
    I have a 10 speed Gripshift from a Specialized bike (i.e. there are no markings on the Gripshift like "XO" or "XX" or anything like that). I would like to buy a 10 speed XX derailleur. Will my "Specialized" Gripshift be compatible with the XX derailleur?
    Thanks for your help,
    John

    what's the bike? Look up the specs, I't more than likely sram anyway, but could be soemthing else (shimano make a twist shifter for something i think). Anyway looking up the specs of the bike will point to more info on whats compatable.

    EDIT: I see they are "from" a specialised bike, not "on" a specialied bike... so no idea
    All the gear and no idea.

    Thanks for your reply, but I bought them online, so unfortunately I don't know what bike they came off?

    I managed to contact the guy from whom I bought the Gripshift.
    Turns out it was an X7 exact actuation 10 speed rear derailleur. Therefore, should work perfectly with the XX rear derailleur.

    I don't believe that they would be 10 spd if they are X7. To my knowledge, only XX and XO have 10 spd twist shifters.

    agreed.
    x7 were never 10 speed, neither were x9 grippies.
