Don't throw out those vintage downtube shifters - they're the perfect match for city bikes, tourers, and porteurs! They're lightweight, simple, inexpensive, and are compatible with almost any front and rear derailleur. Although, they can be a pain to reach for in traffic.

- Hinged design so you don't need to remove any components or accessories for installation
- Integrated barrel adjustor to dial in cable tension on the fly

Bought this because I needed to replace a set of broken indexed trigger shifters on an old vintage MTB that I was modernizing and I wanted to switch to friction shifting.
Moved the shift levers on my wife's bike from the downtube up onto the bars. Very clean and tidy way to do it.
The shifters are very well made. It would be nice if there were instructions included, and possibly another color to choose from. But, all in all they work great and allowed me to use my vintage downtube shifters on the handlebar. Also, the shims that were included fit perfectly. Great product,
Works with Dura-Ace 11 Speed Bar-end shifters, works on Modern TT aerobars too.
Awesome to have these, helps bigtime with old road bike conversions. Look very clean also!! Keep making cool products like these
