Help - lost in transmission confusion '(-_-)'
Hi. Joined the forum to see if anyone can help shed some light on my quandry? I"ve Deda Dabar (bullhorn) handlebars and Shimano 105 front and rear mechs. The bike is 2x9 speed. My query is finding the right trigger shifters to fit either side of the headset clamp on the 31.8mm bars and their compatible bracket/clamps. They have to be hinged brackets/clamps or they won't get around the corners of the bars. I've seen some BOX brackets that'll house a BOX 9speed shifter securely on 31.8 bars, but I can't find a BOX x2 speed left hand shifter for the front mech? I've seen some PAUL brackets for SRAM shifters but they're a lot of money. Plus I don't know if I can run my shimano 105 mechs on SRAM shifters? I could put bar end shifters in and cyclecross brake levers on top of the bars, but I'd don't want this configuration. Like I say, I want bar end brakes and trigger shifters eitherside of the headset clamp on 31.8 clean bracket/clamps. If anyone can help advise me what will work with what, plus keep the bars nice and clean but function properly, I'd be interested in hearing from you. Thanks.
