- Shimano I-spec B
I have XT brakes (785 or something) they are clamped to the bar as usual
the box states the are I spec B.
I’m looking to goto 1×11 so looking at an slx shifter.
noticed theres an option of Bar clamp or I spec B or I spec 2.
If I got the I spec B one how does it attached and do I need any extra gubbings?Posted 5 months ago
or should I just get a bar mount.ScamperMember
Recently went 10 speed (my current Zee brakes were ispec B). The saint 10 speed ispec B shifter came with the 3 bits to allow attachment to the Zee. I’d previously made the mistake of buying a Saint shifter off ebay but it was just ispec, not ispec B, and thus not compatible with ispec b brakes.
Also attached this shifter to the latest Deore brakes with no issues.Posted 5 months agoDezBSubscriber
If you do find you need the bolt, like what I did – CRC sell them
I had to buy 2.
The black ones bolt through the clamp of (I think) newer shifters, so you’ll either need those or just the silver bolt.
i-Spec 2 is new 1000 series only (eg, M8000) and is a different style clamp without the bolt. They aren’t compatible.Posted 5 months agomartinhutchSubscriber
Plus no matter how much loctite I used, one of my ispec shifters had the habit of loosening, the bolt falling out, then the whole thing dropping off during the next descent when all chance of finding the bolt was gone.
Disc rotor bolts are a good substitute though.
Bar mount for my next set.Posted 5 months ago
