Microshift R8 Drop Bar Brake/Shift Levers (Black) (Left) (2x)
I needed a new shifter for my front derailleur . I am using it on my 9-speed system with a 46/30 GRX crankset and it works great. It has a trim setting so you don't get chain rub as you shift through the cassette. The price is right too.

Microshift R8 Drop Bar Brake/Shift Levers (Black) (Pair) (3 x 8 Speed)
Direct replacement for 15 year old Shimano Sora ST-3300 Triple (3x8). Perfect indexing for existing road derailleurs. Easy to install with all new cables (exterior and internal). Back on the road with smooth shifting and braking.
