Avid Matchmaker

Anyone considering moving their Avid levers/SRAM triggers around (like me - gonna put the brakes inboard) might be interested in this little Avid Matchmaker thing I just noticed. Didn't see it before, perhaps I'm just slow.

No, it's not some kind of super keen cupid, it's a single mount that both Avid Levers and SRAM shifters can hang from. Found a nice picture here on NSMB:

Hmmmm... Ultimate and X0.... Sticking out tongue

You can even hang pop-loc remote switches off these two, as this page shows:

FWIW, Avid's accessory page also shows a pic, but doesn't tell us much:

This setup came standard on my Scott. Works a treat.

Really? I didn't notice - will take a look next time you're out.

Must have missed if before 'cos I was too busy looking for the hanger... where did they fit that again? Eye-winkSticking out tongue

That's right no detachable hanger Smiling

Do you think that they could be swapped left to right so that brakes can move further in for one finger braking? It looks like a long way from the end of the break leaver to the shifter in the picture.

Yes indeed - I read somewhere that they are reversible so you can have brakes further in/out by swapping the mounts between left and right side.
