Shifters - Bar End - Silver1, Kit
Their magic is the Power Ratchet inside. The shifting is smooth, light, simple, fast, and precise. Indexing, in comparison, seems raucous and archaic. They work with any derailer, and freewheel, cassette, chain, etc., so you have the peace of mind that comes from knowing you'll never be midway between gears and powerless to do anything about it.
Here is a short instructional video showing how to mount them on bar-end pods.
FLASH! SRAM's 9, 10, 11sp mountain, Sram 10 and 11sp road; Shimano mountain 10sp dynasys, Shimano 11sp road (Shimano 10sp Road will sorta work but it's hard to dial in the right gear since the cogs are so close); Campy 10/11sp rear derailers don't seem to work with this shifter. The movement of the derailer changes dramatically from the 8th to the 9th position. Why'd they do that? Anyway -- just don't use these with those derailers.
OK, now back to the description:
There's a short learning curve, but don't let that scare you. Everybody learns fast with these.
This bar-end version NO longer includes cables, housing and the downtube stops because you may already have that stuff laying around and/or your frame may not have downtube shifter posts.
