Any aftermarket suggestions for mating XTR m9120 brakes, to AXS shifter & dropper, for clean single clamp goodness. Tried Wolftooth, Problem Solvers...I don't think ispec or matchmaker will work either. You help me now.

I too went down the same road with previous build kit

Had to embrace the dual clamp lifestyle to be comfy and not look back

I believe in you

NEVERRRRRRRR Madder


In all seriousness, it's really not a big deal, nor a deal breaker, it's just my preference to ease my OCD. Last 4 bikes I've had single clamp setups and I've been spoiled ever since. I like one clamp, one cable, one less screw to tighten or loosen. So clean.

I don't use Matchmaker with my AXS controller. I really don't like how close it puts the shift paddle to my hands. Dual clamp is so much more adjustable, and having two clamps is a small price to pay for getting rid of a whole shift cable.

New Shimano brake clamps are kinda spaced wierd though. In the past I ran grip-brake-shifter all tight against one another.

Now, there is a gap between the grip and the lever and my shifters are further out.

I like the idea of increased bracing of the lever body, but I could see the advantage to single clamps.

Plus matchmaker clamps are just rude to carbon bars. The stealth clamps are way doper, spread the load and stuff.

You're probably running into two problems that happens with ice climbing. 1. When you are gripping you are squeezing those blood vessels reducing warm blood to your hands. So not overgripping is even more important 2. If your core isn't warm enough as the blood goes down your arms it continues to cool, not helping anything.

what grips you running curcles?

ESI's seem to stay warmer for me than other harder materials. No need to answer, I probably won't be back in the forum for weeks.
