Wanting to simplify, and minimise complexity and cost, I decided to revert to the tech I used in the Sixties, and I was not disappointed. The product means I can use any of my cassettes without faff, or without buying brake levers etc. My Campag Super Record, with a Wolf's Tooth, well covers from 11 to 30. I think now I'll try an eleven cassette with a 32 bottom. Great product make cycling easier to maintain and service.

ProsEasy to fit and worked perfectly
I was surprised how good these levers worked on my 10 speed Campagnolo set up. It’s a pity these weren’t available when down tube friction levers were the norm.

Really nice well made item. Looks the business on classic style bike. Simple light action gear shifts and works with any gear, no worries about indexing which is brilliant if you want to mix gear systems. Easy to set up and operate.
Drastic Upgrade over Indexed Alternatives!

ProsAllow extremely accurate shifting, easy to setup.
These give beautifully accurate gear shifts and promote harmony between rider and bike. Simple to setup as your derailleur can be tensioned by preference for greater lever travel or faster changes. You feel more connected with your bike as you feel your way through the gears.

I will be buying these or the other friction models from Dia-Compe for all bikes I end up owning. These shifters are a huge upgrade on indexed alternatives!
Questions & Answers (11)
Are they compatible with Shimano XT 10 speed rear derailleur
22 Jan 2024
I would like if the dia compe lever shifters would be compatible and work with rear and front derailleurs Shimano XT?
These shifters have no indexing, just micro clicks, they will work with almost all derailleurs and pull enough cable for up to 10 speed cassettes. SK 23/01/24
Moulton compatibility

Would these be compatible with the down tube lever attachment found on older AM Moulton's i.e AM18. Regards
Provided the frame has frame mounted stops for cable guides / shifters on the down tube then these will work. SK 25/05/23
Are these compatible with part no.10405 and/or Dura-Ace bar end shifter pods (9sp) ?r

Thank you for your enquiry, sorry no they are not suitable due to internal differences.

Can I use this with a recent Shimano derailleur ?
26 Jul 2021
Am I right to assume that these shifter would work on a recent Shimano 10 speed derailleur ?
Thank you for your enquiry, as they are friction they will be fine.

Hello, we cannot confirm this without having your bike in the shop to test fit this.

Can these be serviced?
14 Sep 2020

I am wondering if they can be disassembled for cleaning and greasing, etc.

Hello, yes these can be disassembled for cleaning and greasing.

Do they work with 5-speed?

HI, these are friction shifters so they will work. Thanks
Is this the version with a bigger right-side friction shifter compared to the one on left side?

Hi there,

Both levers are the same size.

Will These Shift 10 Speed Campagnolo?
17 May 2017

As these are frictions shifters they have no indexed gear points so will be fine for use with Campagnolo derailleurs.

Hi yes this is for a pair of levers.
Hi, Do The Dia-Compe Ene Down Tube Shifters Fit Onto Campagnolo Braze-On Bosses?
31 May 2016

In our experience all frame bosses are a universal fit so these shifters should fit fine.
