ProsFunctionality and price
I bought this to replace the grip shift on my daughter's Frog which she was struggling to turn. Easy install and set up, and works incredibly well. She finds it so much easier to shift now and keeps asking if we can go for long rides instead of moaning whenever we go out. Amazing price for what you get. Excellent advice and service from SJS as always...

Work with Vintage Shimano 600 EX?
19 Jan 2024
I have got myself a new project, which is an early 80s Dawes Galaxy with vintage 600 EX rear derailleur. I believe the exact model is DC-230 introduced in 1978. The bike has a 5 speed freewheel. Do you know if this 5 speed shifter will index properly on that? If not, any bar-mounted friction shifters you could recommend? Thanks
This shifter should work with your bike, at this time there are very few options in 5 speed. SK 19/01/24
Hi, do you think the clamp would fit on a 24mm handlebar?
06 Sep 2021
No, as its designed for flat bars 22.2mm OD

Can I use the 6 speed shifter with 5 gears?
16 Aug 2020
I have an older 5 speed freewheel but also a 6 speed and not sure which I will use on my final build
- 5, 6, or 7 speed index

Thanks - 17/08/20
can i use with Sunrace 5 speed freewheel and Shimano SIS Long cage derailleur?

Do you also sell a compatible shifter for the front mechanism?
Hi, yes this should work. For the left hand shifter use our part 23293. Thanks
Can I use this with Shimano SIS Five-speed?
06 Jul 2020
I'm looking to replace a five-speed Shimano SIS thumb shifter as the ratchet won't hold onto first gear, I believe due to wear, so was wondering if this product would be a suitable replacement.


yes this is a suitable replacement

Hi, Can this be used along with a Shimano LX derailleur as I connot find a DX thumbshift anywhere. Thankyou
Yes but a better quality item would be the Sunrace M90 8 Speed Thumbshifter - Right Hand (SJS Cycles part number : 37383) which does 7 or 8 RT
What rear derailleur works with this?
12 Jun 2019
I doubt that this will work with my 42-year old Campy SR rear derailleur so what would be a good rear derailleur to make this work?
depends on how many speeds and which cassette of freewheel you have, best to call us on 01278441500 RT130619
Does this work with an 8 speed sunrace rear derailleur and 7 speed freewheel?
26 Feb 2019
Hi there,

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

Does this work with a 7 speed cassette?
16 Jul 2018
Or can it be switched to friction?
Yes there is a 7 speed option on the drop down.

Will this work with a sun race 14-28 freewheel?
26 Aug 2017

This should work fine.

Is The Gear Cable Pictured Included?
04 May 2014

Yes, the gear cable pictured comes with the shifter, it also comes with a few sections of outer cabling.
