I was offered a Mirage set of brifters in 9 sp supposedly with an Escape mech. I thought all Mirage were 10 sp and Escape equipped. I've never heard of a 9 sp with the Escape. Any help would be appreciated.

I have Mirage 9-speed shifters and they don't have the Escape mechanism. Not sure if this helps you or not.
I always thought that Mirage 9 sp weren't Escape or QS. The guy insists that they are.

If you can push the thumb button down and get multiple clicks, it's not an escape mechanism.

FYI, the last Mirage 9S shifter was a 2006 model and it does NOT have an escape mechanism.

Mirage, Xenon, Veloce and Centaur all had escape 10 speed shifters in '07-'08.

Thanks C40, that helps a lot. I'll have to check it out.
