Very Smooth Action.

ConsNo disassembly
ProsSmooth
These allow for very good control and don't come unstuck (they don't suddenly lose the friction part of friction shifting). Very pleasant to use with an old school setup.

How Much Cable Pull?
By
27 Jun 2017
How much cable will this shifter pull. I need 38mm for a Shimano Deore XT long cage, I'm not bothered about whether the indexing matches (although it would be interesting to know) so long as there is enough cable pull in friction mode.
Hi,

These shifters are friction only so they don't have an indexed setting anyway but they will pull sufficient cable for use with a Deore XT rear derailleur.

Thanks.

By

I have a 28.6mm steel frame without braze-on fittings. Will the Origin 8 fitting work with the Dia-Compe friction shifters ?
Hello,

We believe they will work.

Thanks.

Are these shifters the ones that come with the bigger right side barrel to accomodate 50mm cable pull?
Hi,

This is just the standard version with equal sized barrels.

Thanks.

Will These Work With An Campag Athena 11 Speed Set?

Would like to mate these with a silver Athena 11 speed drive train on a Retro I am building.
Hi,

As these shifters are friction they should be absolutely fine for use with your Campagnolo 11spd group set.

Thanks.
