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.

The VO Thumb Shifter Mounts allow you to mount downtube and bar-end shifters on your handlebars. These thumbies put your shifter within easy reach while avoiding the complexity of brifters. They can even be used on drop bars.

  • Compatible with any standard road, mtb, and city handlebars (22.2 and 23.8mm grip area)
  • 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
  • They fit Dia-Compe Downtube Shifters, Dia-Compe Bar End Shifters, Shimano 10/9/8 speed Bar End shifters in addition to a ton of vintage downtube and bar-end shifters

Sold as a pair. Shifters not included.

Note: Not compatible with Microshift shifters (the shifter is too tall) or Dia-Compe 11s road/10s dynasys shifters.

High quality workmanship

This is an excellent shifter holder I am very pleased with it, as I have discovered different placement on the bars, very happy with the functional shifting that it achieves for me.

New der time

I have used thumb shifters on other bikes. They worked well enough to put them on oak old Raleigh Carllton Grand Sport. The problem is this GS does not have a derailleur hanger, it came with a long cage plastic Simplex. I am searching for a der that has an old fashioned bolt on hanger. Since I have a VO triple crank (low 27) i need a loooong cage to accommodate the chain wrap. The hangers, by the way, are not universal. When I find that der i will give you a real review. The fun of doing resto-mods is that they are so frustrating.

Nice mounts

Installed these with Rivendell Silver 1 levers on an SR Alpine Sport, they push a 9s XT derailer.

Great Adapters

Used these on a swept-back handlebar setup with some old suntour down tube shifters. Shifts like a dream.
