Details
Paul "Thumbies" are the original upright handlebar mount for bar end shifters. They do not include the shifter but are designed to be used with indexed bar end shifters from Shimano, Campagnolo, SRAM & others, this version is for use with Shimano shifters only. These shifters are readily available for 8, 9 & 10-speeds, & most have a friction option for everything else.

There are three versions available to pair with Shimano bar end, Campagnolo bar end or SRAM TT shifters. Each company has their own unique shifter boss fitting & they are incompatible with one another.

Mountain Thumbies fit standard mountain bike handlebars but will work with almost anything that has a 22.2mm (7/8 inch) diameter. The shifter boss is raised from the bar to give clearance for bulky two-bolt brake levers & the hinged clamp makes installation easy.

ProsEasy to fit, work well
My apologies for getting back to you so late, but before I could give proper feedback I had to do a few test rides. Everything else was very much okay. No complaints about your service either. They arrived sooner than expected, so nothing more to wish for.

The product itself: Damn good! They are very easy to fit and place the actual shifterpart in just the right place. Way better than the original Shimano thumbies, although it can't reach the ergonomic quality of the STI unit. It's also not as fast shifting as the modern STI units, but its super bombproof and will probably outlast every other shifter combo that's on the market today.

One advantage that's also worth mentioning is that it can make combinations of shifting parts from different brands work. For "walletary" reasons I use a mix of shifting parts from different brands like Shimano, SRAM and BBB. My former XT STI's did the job but not always that good. Now, combined with DuraAce timetrial shifters, it works absolutely flawless. (For globe travellers this info might come in handy also.)

But: If I had known that regular downtubeshifters also fit on these adaptors, I wouldn't have gone through the trouble of getting timetrial shifters. Maybe that's something worth mentioning on your website?

So, thanks SJS Cycles for the quick service and for a top product.

A great solution if you want quality friction thumbshifters. You'll need the barcons too but they work and are athe elegant
