    Comments about Nashbar N-9 9-Speed Dual Control Shifters:

    The Shimano Sora dual-control levers on my cross bike broke (a spring in the shifter broke) after about three years of use. I replaced them with the Nashbar N-9 levers. The Nashbar levers are nicely made and actually higher quality than I expected. They installed exactly like the Shimano levers and once adjusted, operated perfectly. To my surprise, on the road the Nashbar levers shift far more crisply and accurately than the original Sora levers. Let me repeat that in case you're too stunned to catch it. The Nashbar N-9 levers work MUCH better than the original Shimano levers.

    The only negative I've found is that the Nashbar lever hoods have a sharper curve on the top and rise a good bit higher than the Shimano levers. So they don't fit my hands as well as the Shimano levers. Regardless, if they hold up, I'll be glad I bought them.

        Comments about Nashbar N-9 9-Speed Dual Control Shifters:

        These brake lever/shifters is a great way to update a good older bike that has downtube shifters. I have upgraded two bikes with downtube shifters with these devices. One bike had friction shifters and the other had indexed shifters. The only other part needed is the downtube mounted cable stop/adjusters. These are not included in the kit, but are available, just google to find. The shifting action is very smooth and accurate, noisier than the friction shifters but the same as the Dura Ace indexed downtube that were replaced. Not intrusive, just a noticeable click when downshifting or upshifting. As with any new cable installation fine tuning is needed until the cable stops stretching. One of the bikes had been used for over a year, 4500 miles and has needed no more adjusting at this point. In all this time of daily use in good weather I am very pleased with the performance of these components.

        Comments about Nashbar N-9 9-Speed Dual Control Shifters:

        This was a replacement STI unit on a 1998 road bike. There was a bit of a learning curve on how the shifters actuated. The physical shape of the unit was a bit different than the stock one. The shifting was great from the start and hit all gears flawlessly. For the price of this product it's not a bad deal at all.

        Comments about Nashbar N-9 9-Speed Dual Control Shifters:

        I've really enjoyed these shifters for the 300 miles that I've put on them so far. I installed them on my Masi Alare commuter. The installation was very easy. The overall profile is more narrow than my SRAM Rivals or the Sora shifters that they replaced, which makes them nice for smaller hands. If you're able to palm a basketball, then they might seem a little small for you. I'm not a big gear masher (especially before 7 am), so I do a lot of shifting during my normal commute and this set has yet to miss a shift or drop a chain. I agree with previous remarks about being loud when shifting, but I like the mechanical sounds to let me know that things are working. Also, some have commented about the long throw for the left index shifter, but I'd prefer that to having the brake lever pull double duty.

        No Replacement Hoods Available

        By Jesse

        from Dallas, TX

        Comments about Nashbar N-9 9-Speed Dual Control Shifters:

        I've owned the Nashbar 9-speed shifters for long enough that I need to replace the brake hoods. Unfortunately, Nashbar doesn't sell any replacements, so I'm going to have to go looking for something else that might work. Be forewarned that replacements are not available!

          Comments about Nashbar N-9 9-Speed Dual Control Shifters:

          Getting back into cycling after a long layoff and needed to replace a 15 year old set of Ultegra shifters. These are a great inexpensive alternative to the Shimano product and seem to work well. I only have one ride in so far with these, but will get a good century ride test this weekend. One concern I have is the amount of plastic in the construction and how they will hold up over time, but I don't want to deem it as "poor construction" because it is solid and works well.

          Comments about Nashbar N-9 9-Speed Dual Control Shifters:

          Simply put, these shift as well as Ultegra 11. I've put about 600 km on these and they've never missed a shift, even under tension with 105 5500 derailleurs. I actually much prefer the 2-button shifting on these as opposed to the Shimano lever shift. They're not very light, and the non-internally routed shifter cables are somewhat of an eyesore. The length of the hoods is also much longer than my old ones and it screwed up my bike geometry quite a bit.
