No problem, Phil. And in fact, here's the response from Chris Hilton himself: There are a wide variety of possibilities here, but none are as simple as what you describe. 1\. The right controller / shifter only has two functions. It has multiple locations to operate those functions, but only two.  2\. The reduced operating force should be a huge benefit for this rider. Everything is faster and easier, so that alone should be a huge help. 3\. Same thing with the Reverb. A crafty guy could probably concoct a clamp system that would allow you to mount both controllers on the right side of the bar.  4\. Best option might be using the road / Tri blip box and a combination of blip buttons. The box can accept up to 4 inputs, so you could plugin your 3 blips, and place them wherever you want on the bars. In this case, no other controllers would be required. FYI, here's a link to the blip box he's referencing - these are buttons that SRAM eTap has had available for several years - primarily for use on Tri/time trial bikes when using the drops or the aero position and allowing a shift without changing position: [](
