Good option for Nexus 8 with drop handlebars

Good alternative to the stock Shimano shifters when using drops, especially if you are already used to bar-end derailleur shifters
I thought the extent of the lever deplacement might be a problem (about twice as much movement as compared to a bar-end derailleur shifter), in practice it is OK.
Works very well.

Works well and accurately on a Shimano Alfine 8 Hub. Simple to install. Cable it came with was only just long enough so on some bikes it might not be. Tad pricey but a good solution for drop bars.

ProsFunction, looks, versatility
Works great, looks fine.
Turns out lever fits perfectly on old downtube shifter bracket/bolt.
Does what it says on the box.

Questions & Answers (5)
How do I use the Adjustment?
05 Jul 2019
On the side of the shifter it says adjustment plus or minus. Do you know how to use this. If I use an Allen Key then it just loosens the whole unit until it falls apart. I assume it is to make fine adjustments to the gears?
The "adjustment" is changing gear, there is no adjustment to the shifter itself.

Is this the correct picture? It looks exactly like the Microshift shifter?
16 Mar 2019
Yes this is correct, if you look in the Supersize photo, you can see the JTEK branding.

is it indexed

Hi there,
is it indexed ?
what's the difference between this one and the microshift one ?
thank you for your answer.
Yes this is indexed. The main difference is that this is cheaper!

Can I use this with a deda Newton 31.8mm
03 Mar 2019

tahnk you for your answer.
Yes this will fit perfectly.

Hi do these work as thumb shifters using Paul's thumbies. Thanks
13 Oct 2018
Yes, on the Microshift version, but you need to remove a very very slight amount of material from the edge of the thumbie to stop the Jtek shifter scuffing it.
