ProsEasy to install, perfect shifting
I brought the levers to my house in the Philippines and changed my racing bike into internal shifting with Shimano Alfine 11. After more than 1000 kilometres including a long distance ride from Cordova to Samboan (165 km) I am more than happy with them. The function is brilliant under any condition, heat, rain, uphill, downhill. Definitely a great product!
Operationally Better Than Vrs-11

ConsStill the only option, Shimano wake up.
ProsSimple to install, smoother operation.
I had been resigned to the Vrs-11's clunky and spontaneous shifting, as I believed there was no other option.
Only ridden for the first time today since fitting, and the Microshift's are a noticeable improvement.

Smoother and less clunky, but it is early days. I will see how they perform when I am less conscience about downshifting under load- the Vrs-11's real weakness in my experience.

Installing was no problem - even though they do not come with instructions and I could not find any on Microshift's website. I defaulted to using Shimano Alfine Tech Docs as I usually do. However, it took some time to get the cable adjustment correct, the 184mm Shimano recommend put 6th gear one stop high by the yellow hub markers. I had to shorten 5mm or so, still have all 11 speeds, it works, so...

They are very basic in design and construction, and although they may end up doing a good job, they do not compare to cheaper SRAM and Shimano units I have.
Big Improvement Over Vrs-11

ProsSturdy. Matched to the hub. Ergonomically improved.
I bought this to replace a set of the Sussex VRS-11s. They eliminated the half-shifts due to the VRS-11 not matching the Alfine cable pull (which is not constant across the gears). The shifting is crisper and shorter in throw. The outward flare of the brake levers makes them easier to reach from the drops. An excellent product.
Great Product, That Works Much Better Than The Versa Vrs 11

Prosjust works
With the Versa VRS 11 I had many problems. For example when you shifted down, you often ended up more than 1 gear below. I replaced the Versa VRS 11 with this product. This product seems to be much better than the Versa 11 and doesn't have these problems.

Reach adjust function for microshift Alfine 11 drop bar shifters
10 Aug 2022
Hi, I've not long had a set of these off you( just installed). Is there a reach adjustment function on them. Can't seem to see one? Thanks, Steve.
Sadly there is no reach adjust function on these levers,

Alfine/Nexus 8 version of these shifters yet?
20 May 2021
Are you able to get the Alfine/Nexus 8 version of these shifters yet? (I saw the previous question, but that was 4 years ago...). Thanks
Thank you for your enquiry, sorry only 11spd

TRP Spyre brakes compatibility
29 Mar 2021
Hi. I wonder whether it's compatible or not with TRP Spyre mechanical disk brakes? Thanks
Thank you for your enquiry, they are standard road pull so yes will be fine with Spyre's

Is it compatible with hydraulic disc brakes?
07 Oct 2019
Is it compatible with hydraulic disc brakes? If not, do you have anything else which will do the job?
No, these are for mechanical brakes. We are not currently aware of any drop bar STI levers for hydraulic.

Thanks - 08/10/19
Is it compatible with my Koga F3 6.0?
25 Sep 2019
And if so, could you provide me some information of how to install them?

Thanks in advance!
These fit any standard drop bars, they are not bike specific. As long as you have a Shimano Alfine/Nexus 11 they will work.

Simply fit them to the handlebar and cable them up.

Can i use it with every alfine11?
27 Aug 2019
I have the versa 8 with the alfine sg-501, now that both, hub and shifter, are pretty wasted i need to upgrade to the inter11.
I am wondering if the shifter (art no. 39799) is competible to the SG-S7001-11 Centerlock.
Shimano changed at some time the direction of the gear cable mechanism. That's why iam asking.

Thanks Andy
Hi there,

You should be able to use these without an issue, however, as we have never done this we cannot say for certain I'm afraid.

Hello :) Is shipping to Germany possible and how high would the shipping costs be?

Can I switch more than one gear with a single pull?
05 Jul 2018
Can this switch shift more than one gear at a time or do I have to pull the trigger 3 times if I want to change down 3 gears?
You should be able to change 1 or 2 gears at a time.

Hi - Do these work with the Hope V-Twin remote master cylinder?
30 Apr 2018
Hi there,

Yes these should work fine.

Do you sell the Alfine 8 model
02 Nov 2017
Microshift has the SB-N080 model for Alfine 8
Can you have it ?

Unfortunately only the 11spd Alfine shifters are available from Microshift's UK distributor so this is all we're able to offer I'm afraid.

Hello, are these levers ok to drive mechanical disk brake calipers like Avid BB7 or Shimano BR CX 77
22 Oct 2017

These levers pull the correct amount of cable for road type cable brakes so they will work fine with the CX77 brakes but will only work with the road specific BB7 brakes and not the MTB BB7 brakes.

Would These Work With Road Mechanical Disk Brakes?
04 Mar 2017

As your brakes will use road brake cable pull they should be fine for use with these levers.

Anything Compatable Wih My 11 Afine That Would Work With Hydraulic Discs Coming On The Horizon?
01 Dec 2016

Unfortunately there is nothing we're aware of at the moment that will suit your requirements I'm afraid.

Will The Microshift Inter11 Alfine Gear/Brake Levers Work With Traditional Cantilever Brakes?
27 Nov 2016

These levers should be absolutely fine for use with your cantilever brakes.

Installation And Maintenance Instructions?
21 Jul 2016
I got the product, but would like installation and maintenance instructions for it. Do you have any?


There aren't any instructions available for these I'm afraid, but if you want to give us a call we'll be able to offer any advice on installation you may need.

09 Apr 2016
is it still possible to get Versa VRS8 Road Shifter for nexus 8 hub and drop bars?



I'm afraid we're no longer able to get hold of the 8-spd VRS8 versions of these shifters.
