    XX Gripshift/ XT brakes?

    Anybody runing new shimano XT brakes with the new XX Gripshift? Was wondering on reach issues with the XT brake lever being long enough. The Sram levers are longer but the brakes suck compared to the xt's.

    The levers are WAY too short IMHO. You can buy Shimano XT Trekking levers from Europe which are longer and give plenty of reach.

    I have the xx1 gripshift with xtr brakes and was able to make the short levers work. I just had to cut down a grip on the gripshift side. I'm ordering up some shorty ODI lock on grips to see how they will work out.
