Reverb remote mounting
Just fiddled with my reverb remote mounting. Running, from bar end inwards, brakes, xt shifters, reverb (lh mount upside down on the right) and have found that, by loosening the shifter mount, can slide the reverb piston between the flat plate on the shifter and the bar- makes for a neat solution. Am guessing that the shifter body is under slight tension now as its just a few mm out of position, but I can’t foresee any issues with this – can anyone else?Posted 5 years ago
@messiah – nice setup. I run my brakes the other side of the shifters at the mo so can’t do that – so mine go where your gold-bolted brake clamp is – but I’d not thought you could slide it between shifter lever and bar. Seen one where they cut the shift lever! Good to know there are options if I move brakes inboard too.Posted 5 years ago
I’ve got the new XT brakes so the lever’s significantly shorter than other brakesets.
Messiah – I’ll have another play with it at some point, although I’m about 90% sure it can’t be done with my XTR shifters. Do you have a picture of your setup? The (9 speed) XTR shifters have a detachable bar mount so I’ve toyed with the idea of somehow bending that / fabricating another one (or a matchmaker-compatible bracket for the right side).Posted 5 years ago
@superficial – mine sit inboard of the brakes, and the brakes themselves are about a mount-width inside the grips – so they’re set up for 2 finger braking, not 3 (nor 1!). Then the XT shifters, and that’s just right, However, I’ve got large hands, so that clearly makes a difference…..Posted 5 years ago
