One of the reviews indicates the 8 speed shifter can be switched to friction however, one of the SJS customer Service Q and As indicated that the 8 speed side is index only.

Can you please confirm if the 8 speed side can be switched to friction?
Thank you for your enquiry, the RH shifter is index only

Can these be used sis and friction if needed?
05 Dec 2019
Hi there,

The left hand is friction and the right hand is index so you can use them together without an issue.

Can these be used for barends?
25 Feb 2019
I have an old Shimano barend shifter with broken handles, seeing as these use same braze bosses as Shimano, would it be possible to mount them on my old Shimano barends if i remove the old broken handles?
This will probably work, but we honestly have not tested it!

Hi there, are these indexed to suit Shimano or Campag? Or do they provide both types?
14 Oct 2018
These are to suit Shimano, and will not work with Campagnolo.

Hi I currently have an 18 speed set up on my dawes galaxy, I have a new set of wheels to take an 8 speed freehub could I use these ok also adding a new derailleur and chain. I also believe my current spacing is 126mm for the rear wheel but an 130mm will fit in. And lastly will the front triple work ok with this set up. Many Thanks

These shifters should be fine for use with an 8spd rear derailleur and a triple front derailleur.

Will these work with 7 speed cassette ?

In theory you could use these with a 7spd cassettes but as the shifters are 8spd you would just have an extra click that didn't do anything.

Is It Possible To Use The Right Hand Lever In Friction Mode
12 Mar 2016
Is it possible to use the right hand lever in friction mode or will it only work in index mode?

The right hand shifter can only be used in the index mode I'm afraid.
