The specialized droppers come with a lever that looks just like a shifter .

Yes. For about $20 you can just buy the Specialized lever which is exactly the same as a Sram front shifter but half the weight and 100% less ghetto.

I built out my unused SRAM x something FD shifter into a dropper actuator last year sometime using similar instructions from the OP and was able to get it going (I think @jumpa has it now actually). Worked great from what I remember.

Anyway - I ended up upgrading to the specialized lever for exactly what @jimvreeland says but I think I paid $60. Raceface has something similar too, but again for around $50 or $60.

Still have it if somone wants to try it out. The dropper is on my buddies bike but he is using a third party remote.

That's guide brakes with a reverb dropper. They are integrateable. (Not a word, but it should be!)
