    Just got my Avid 7 levers, and didn't "try" replacing them yet but have a question after taking a look... Is it possible that my shifter is part of the brake lever that's currently on there? It seems to be either one piece or mounted to the levers... Seeing how the Avid's have a different form factor (I think), I don't imagine that the shifters will fit on the same way.

    '09 Hardrock by the way.

    Here. I'm just not sure where "here" is.
    If there is only one bar clamp, then the shifters are integrated with the brake levers. To replace either, you must replace both.
