Good downtube shifters

I recommend this product
Used these to replace STIs on a classic trike. More in keeping with the trike's age.
Indexes well with the Shimano 8 speed derailleur. STIs were different to keep in adjustment. Easy to use downtube shifters on a trike without wobbling.

Compatible with shimano claris derailleur?
17 Nov 2020
I have an 16 speed (8/2) with Shimano claris STI shifters and claris derraileurs. Handlebars stolen so looking for affordable replacement. Thanks!
Yes, for 8 speed Shimano these will be a suitable replacement.

Can the lever used for the front mech be removed please?
17 May 2020
Can I remove the lever for the front mech and have just the rear shifter?
Yes, you could, you would left with a stub.

Can I use with a Shimano 7 speed cassette?
18 Oct 2019
The 7 speed cassette has 5mm between sprockets. Is this the same movement per index?
Yes, but you will have an extra click!

What rear derailleur?
29 Jul 2018
Hi. What rear derailleur would you recommend to match these with?
If they use a 2:1 actuation ratio, does that cover most brands, or just Shimano?
Hi there,

We would recommend these are suitable for Shimano 8 speed.

Would this work with a Thorn childback tandem frame?
30 Apr 2018
Hi there,

As long as you select a tube that is 28.6mm you could fit these to a Thorn tandem, or pretty much anything!

Can You Switch The 8Spd Lever To Friction? Thanks
07 Nov 2016

These are indexed only so cannot be converted to friction unfortunately.

Whould It Be Possible To Remove The Shifters From The Clamp And Mount Them On The
27 Oct 2016

In theory you should be able to remove these from the clamp and fit them directly to shifter bosses on the down tube if you wanted to.

Would these (or one of these) work with the 8 speed Alfine hub gears?

I'm afraid not, 8spd derailleur gears use a very different cable pull to 8spd Shimano hub gears. We do not have any down-tube shifters suitable for use with an Alfine hub I'm afraid.
