It’s the little things that get us excited around the shop. This week for me was the install of a product I have seen for a while just never had a bike that I could use it on. Most of you know that SRAM owns a few company’s, Rock Shox, Avid, Zipp, ect. It makes perfect sense that some of the products should work together. SRAM has a part called the Matchmaker that cleans up the handle bars by integrating the brake and shifter clamps.“Save weight and clutter on the bar with MatchMaker. This system holds Avid® levers, a number of SRAM® triggers and RockShox PushLoc controls – all with one tidy, light clamp.”
Here are some before and after pictures- One thing that makes this so nice is the ability to change brake lever and shifter angle with a 4mm allen wrench….before you needed a 4mm for the brakes and a 5mm for the shifter. As you can see it’s the small things, no carbon, not flashy colors, just well thought out products.
