8. Use Blips (remote shifter buttons) to do all your shifting with one hand.
Blip remote shifter buttons plugged into drop bar shifters perform the same function when pressed as the shifters they are attached to. That means if you have at least one Blip per shifter (you can have up to two) you can shift the rear derailleur in both directions by pressing the Blips individually and shift the front derailleur by pressing a Blip from each shifter at the same time.
So let’s say you wanted to use your right hand only to shift the derailleurs. To do this just place a Blip plugged into the left shifter next to a Blip from the right shifter anywhere you want on the right side of the handlebar. With a Blip from each shifter sitting right next to one another, you can perform all shifting operations with your right hand. To do a front shift with this setup, just use two fingers to press the Blips simultaneously. No matter what width your handlebars are, SRAM makes a Blip with the right length wire for your application. Blips are available in 150mm, 230mm, 450mm, and 650mm wire lengths.
