Awkward angle

        Comments about Nashbar 9-Speed Mountain Shifters:

        The mechanisms work well and shifts are smooth.

        However,like most trigger shifters, the left trigger only has 3 positions - no ability to trim the front der.

        I'm unable to get a comfortable ergonomic angle for both the thumb shifter and the brake lever. Ideally I'd like the trigger shifter and the brake lever mounted inline, but the bulky workings of the trigger shifter unit does not allow this - and I've tried various brake levers.

        May have to buy an integrated shifter / brake.

        Comments about Nashbar 9-Speed Mountain Shifters:

        Installation and set-up were easier than I've ever encountered, and I've built many bikes. Shifting was fast and precise with a "S" rear derailleur (haven't tried the front yet since this is a 1X build). If this product proves to be durable I'm going to be using 9 speed for a long time and save lots of money. This has prompted me to try one of Nashbar's derailleurs. Another unbeatable, inexpensive product from them..

        9 SPD Tandem Upgrade...

          Comments about Nashbar 9-Speed Mountain Shifters:

          I used them to build up an older tandem. I had a collection of 9spd parts around (Crank, Cluster) and used these along with the matching Rear Mtn. der. to complete the build.

          Flawless shifting front and back. The front is mated to a Microshift brazeon and a Sugino XD600 tandem crankset.

            Much better than shift levers that came with bike. Very fast shifting. Can even shift to lower rear going uphill. Bought 5 one for each bike. Great upgrade.

              I got these along with the Nashbar/Microshift derailer for my latest mountain bike/commuter buildup. It has worked smoothly and perfectly and they have a very attractive and functional design.

                  Comments about Nashbar 9-Speed Mountain Shifters:

                  The design is compact and appears to be high in quality such as the large aluminum shift lever. It installs as easily as any other shifter set, plenty of line. Tuning is another matter, it's not easy to get a graduated shift up/down on the front d-mech, it will tend to go up/down 2 chainrings at a time unless you employ partial shift throws etc. Shifting from a larger cog to amaller one is uncomfortable for two different reasons: design-black plastic knob is right on shifter(does not protrude far enough)tension-even with tension barrell adjusters at minimum and correct d-mech tension you have to press uncomfortably hard and hear a clacking sound that makes the dog walkers look at you funny. They do work, I was not satisfied with the way they work.
                  I have purchased name brand shifters in the past from this seller at a slightly higher price point that were day and night superior to these. You get what you pay for.

                      crisp and precise, click and the unit shift nice and clean. I'm using it with a high normal Shimano XTR deraillier, which makes it real easy to go from high gear to low with two pushes of the thumb. Nice when you come across that unexpected hill while single tracking. If weight is an issue these aren't for you but if reliablity is you can't go wrong.

                        These shifters have to be (one of) Nashbar's greatest value products. Simple, well made, included (mile) long stainless steel cables (but dang, no housing!). These have be to pretty durable since the mechanism is so simple (unlike brifters). For the price, I bought two .. to be used on flat bar urban style road bikes. My back ain't getting any better when I got older.
