Who says 10-speed road shifters have to be expensive? With the Nashbar N-10 10-Speed Dual Control Shifters you'll have dual control levers that deliver reliable shifting, powerful braking, and they do it for a fraction of the cost you'd pay with that capital S brand . Compatible with Shimano 10-speed double front and rear derailleurs.
Comments about Nashbar N-10 10-Speed Dual Control Shifters:
I had done my homework and these seem to get a bad rap in road bike blogs from people that have never owned a pair. Well, I got these mounted and they are just right for me. The internals seem fine and I haven't noticed any defects or flaws to date (After 500 miles). The Microshift systems work a little differently than the big 3. There is a large paddle and a much smaller paddle for shifting, which I really love. The actual brake lever does not move in the shifting process. Shifts are quick and as precise as I'd expect for this level of cost. Shifting is significantly louder than other systems I've used, so if you're into stealthy ninja shifting these aren't for you.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
