Bar End Shifters

Shimano Bar-end Shifters

Shimano Ultegra 8 Speed Bar-end Shifters LD801 $109.95 buy button

These permit switching between indexed and friction shifting.

Complete with cables, housing and down-tube cable stops for attachment to down-tube braze-ons. If your bike doesn't have the braze-ons, you also need to buy a pair of clamp-on cable stops.

The 7-speed units are no longer available, but the 8-speed shifters actually work quite well with 7-speed cassettes, especially with modern rear derailers.

 

Shimano Dura-Ace 9 Speed Bar-end Shifters $129.95 buy button

9-speed for the not-so rich! These work with Ultegra, 105, RSX and all other recent Shimano derailers except pre-1997 Dura-Ace. Convert an 8-speed bike to 9-speed with these shifters, new 9-speed cassette, and chain.

These are compatible with all Shimano 9-speed equipment.

We also have Dura-Ace 9-speed down-tube shifters in stock. buy button

Brake/shifter Units - Brifters

ST-A070 7 Speed Brake/Shifters

New! 
Shimano ST-A070 7-speed (Double Front) STI brake/shifter set LD7072 $109.95/pr.  buy button

Shimano hasn't made 7 speed brifters in years. But they're back!

An excellent upgrade for older bikes. They are compatible with all recent Shimano rear derailers, all 7-speed freewheels/cassettes.

The A070 series is Shimano's new entry level road group. These brifters use the main lever to shift to larger sprockets, but have a small thumb button to shift to smaller sprockets, similar to Campagnolo ERGO.

These sets include shifter cables and housing.

ST-EZ-Fire

Below-The-Bar Brake/Shifters

Shimano ST-EF65 7 Speed EZ-Fire Levers $48.95 buy button

There's a lot of older 21 speed mountain bikes out there with traditional cantilever brakes.
This is a great replacement set.

Shifters: 7 speed index rear / 3 speed indexed front
Brake levers: Cantilever compatible.
Note: These are adjustable levers. They will work with V or Canti brakes.
The factory setting is for V-brakes and will have to be adjusted to work with cantilevers:

  • Unscrew the red plastic tab that secures the pivoting cable head anchor.
  • Lower the cable anchor to position "C" and reinsert the red tab.)

    Comes with SHIFT cables and housing.

    Shimano Altus SL-M310 7 Speed Shifters

    Don't need no steenkin' brake levers?

    We were sad to see Shimano discontinue the SL-MC40 7-Spd Rapidfire shifters.
    But these newer ones from Shimano will do the trick if you have separate brake levers and only need shifters.

    Shifters Sold Separately: 7 speed index rear / 3 speed indexed front. Each comes with cable and housing.

    Front/Left 3-Speed Shifter LD8760  $18.95  buy button
