Tour Easy: SRAM X.0 Rear Grip Shifter

With more snow on the schedule, Mary’s bike finally got a new rear shifter:

It’s an old-school SRAM X.0 grip shifter, evidently compatible with SRAM X.9 and X.7 derailleurs, and seems to work OK. The wavy ridges may be more prominent than necessary for our road riding, though.

In a miracle of rare device, the preinstalled cable turned out to be exactly long enough:

Tour Easy - SRAM X.0 cable length

Twiddling the length for perfect shifting requires on-the-road testing and the chain wrap may need tweaking (I may not have gotten it right when I installed the derailleur), but at least the shifter stops at every detent along the way.
