Shiftmate #7 Straight

I recommend this product
I built a Salsa Fargo and I live in Brisbane Queensland. You're just not going anywhere around here without a full range of gears. It's just too hilly, particularly for a heavy, loaded bike. I also wanted to run Shimano XT as I've always had great life out of it.

I used 105 10 speed shifters with 10 speed cassette, chain and triple cranks. 9 speed front and rear derailleurs and the Shiftmate #7 made it all possible sorting out the front deraileur for me.

It was what made my prefered build possible and works very well. SJS dispatched quickly and it was delivered soon after. I have to recomend the shop and the Shiftmate.

ConsA bit pricey for what you get, but its a niche market
ProsWorks perfectly
Fantastic piece of kit. A bit pricey, but was the only option when converting my Rockhopper to drop bars for comfort when covering longer distances. Allowed me to keep my old crankset and front derailleur and still convert to STI levers. Now shifts flawlessly.
Had previously tried a road front derailleur but the 52mm chainline prevented changing to the largest cog. This little device was my last chance and worked a treat!

Will This Work On A Road Double Front Mech And Mtb Shifter
By

I have a moulton tsr (flat bar) with mtb shifters (Shimano SLX). The bike will only accept a braze on front mech. Will this work on a double chainset, or is it only for a triple?
Thanks

Hi,

This has been designed for use with triple chainsets and shifters only I'm afraid. Double shifters use a different amount of cable pull.

Thanks.
Mtb Twist Grip Shifter With Shimano 105 Road Der & Rings
By

I am trying to adapt my wife's road bike from drop bar with Shimano 105 road shifters (3x9) to a riser handlebar with twist shifters (Microshift). Everything works fine except shifting in the front. The twist shifter moves the derailleur much too far, skipping the middle chainring when shifting from position 1 to 2. The description of this Straight 7 adapter suggests that it is just what I need, but I want to be sure before placing my order.
SJS Customer Service:
Hi,

You are correct in thinking this ShiftMate straight 7 would be the correct model required to match your Microshift twist shifters with your road front derailleur.

Thanks.
