Sometimes you just want the best of both worlds. If we’re talking shifting and braking, right not, that might mean running Shimano brakes with SRAM Eagle shifters. If that’s your go-to set up, Wolf Tooth Components has a new product that will make integrating the two more seamless than ever.

Called the Shiftmount, the adapter is meant to allow you to run SRAM shifters on Shimano IS-II compatible brakes. The simple adapter is machined from 6061 T6 aluminum and weighs just 8g and cleans up your cockpit in the process. Thanks to a slotted mounting hole, and the rotation of the positioning under the brake mount clamp, there are two methods of adjustment to help dial in your fit.

Sold only as a right adapter, the Shiftmount is priced at $19.95.

On the other side of the bar, Wolf Tooth doesn’t technically have any new components, but they do have two new limited edition color options.

Their celebrated ReMote and ReMote LA dropper post levers are now both available for a limited time with gold or orange levers. Each version in each color is priced at $69.95.

Finally, you can finish off your build with two new options for their Mini Bling kits with new Bronze or Violet. Each sells for $14.95 and included an Ultralight stem cap with an integrated 5mm spacer, lightweight aluminum bolt, and a 5 and 3mm spacer to match.

    • I would choose Sram brakes all day every day over Shimano. Sram might have problems but at least they address those issues and provide customers a solution.
      Shimano on the other hand has just as many if not more issues than Sram. Such as fluid weeping through the piston seal and fluid leaking from master cylinder seals. Both of which they are aware of but continue to give customers and bike shops the run around when trying to warranty these problems.
      Have fun with that!!

      • Yeah I can’t say I’ve encountered too much of that. As a shop mechanic I see a lot of both SRAM and Shimano brakes with problems in about equal measure from both, barring the sticky lever Guide brakes (an easy fix with no recurring problems).

        At this point it’s really all about which brake feels better to you. Personally I prefer the modulation (“sponginess”) of SRAM brakes, others like the “right there” feel of Shimanos.
