- Talk to me about MatchMaker clamps…
I was looking into this briefly the other day.
The only info I could find was that most matchmakers would only match Sram/Sram or Shimano/Shimano. But there is a matchmaker (dont remember the brand) that matched Sram shifters with Shimano brake levers. I remember this specifically because I need the opposite and there was not an option available.
But keep looking. You may find something.Posted 4 years agofrogstompSubscriber
Thanks for the info, I did Google but couldn’t find anything particularly conclusive – each type of clamp listed their own products as compatible without explicitly stating that other types were incompatible..
Anyway, after the suggestions above I’ve refined my search a bit and found the following:Posted 4 years agoGarry_LagerSubscriber
I think (not certain) that the mounting holes on a brake lever will be pretty similar, so you should get it on the bars OK, but the angle that the matchmaker displays the shifter might vary. I broke two avid matchmakers under v innocuous circumstances, warranty refused, so tried a hope one and it didn’t work. The avid brake fitted but the shifter was pointing at an unusable angle.Posted 4 years agofrogstompSubscriber
What’s the deal with MatchMaker clamps? Are they a standard ‘one size fits all’ solution or (what I suspect) just a generic term for a clamp which can mount multiple controls but which needs to be specific to those controls?
Ultimately what I’m asking is can you attach an Shimano brake lever (XT) and a SRAM shifter lever to the same clamp?Posted 4 years ago
