I am buying another pair for backup.

It came standard with the Matchmaker clamp set to allow the X9 / Juicy 5 combo to be mounted as one.

Now my handlebar looks a little more clean and very nice.

One of the clamps broke off when I put my bike in the back of a VW golf. This was on my first ride. No crashes, no impacts, just the padded back seat of a car. Why did this happen? The clamps are sculpted away to lower weight and to look cool I guess. Combine that design with the inferior materials used to make this product, and you end up with a weak clamp- so weak that when you pull on a derailleur cable the metal just snaps. Can Avid or SRAM do better? Of course. Just look at the Matchmaker X- which serves the same purpose, but has a much stronger design and is made of aluminum, not pot metal. However, that clamp only supports XX and Elixir CR Mag levers. If you have any other type of Avid brake, you are stuck with this, you might as well flush your 20 dollars down the toilet.

Save your money and stay away from this product till they redesign it!

UPDATE: Avid replaced the clamps, and the replacement set is much more robust. It has been going strong for 8 months now. I changed my review to 4 stars because I think they solved the problem.

I hate to dog on a product that I would otherwise be happy with, but it's not strong enough.. Manufacturing defect?

I bought my bike new 2 months ago.. It came standard with the Matchmaker clamp set to allow the X9 / Juicy 5 combo to be mounted as one. It saves weight, and reduces clutter on the bar.. Also makes removing them easier as it is one unit. However, the right side shifter bracket broke while I was riding - literally just pushed it and it snapped off. I thought it was a fluke, and bought the standard SRAM aluminum mount. This last week (2 months with the new bike) I went down <5mph and it snapped the left one in the exact same spot. I would save the money, and just go with the standard aluminum clamps. They may add a few more grams, but it's better than having to finish a race using your bike as a single speed.

Update: With the standard aluminum clamps, I have still yet to break them, 6 months later. I have went down in excess of 20 mph, hit trees, and hit some crazy drops. I think it may be a manufacturing defect with the matchmakers.

I bought these because I broke one side on a ride. I see in other reviews that they break easy. My understanding is that's the point of the product so that you don't break your expensive lever. I also saw the review pointing out extra material in the casting causing the metal to split. I didn't have that issue. So far me I've put a few hundred miles on the product with no issue. Awesome stuff. If you crash hard it will break saving you money as you don't have to buy a whole new lever.

As an OEM product, this clamps did what they promised. Now my handlebar looks a little more clean and very nice. Forget about the weight loss...its nothing worth.

It mathed perfectly. I am buying another pair for backup. I will carry one in my bag. I prevented me from buying the whole lever for 100 bucks.
