Bar end shifters and Aerobars



How does one attach these to the ends of aerobars? Are these the right ones? I'm assuming the DA-9 shifters is compatible with 105-9.

Thanks,
Brendon

There are "pods" that fit in the end of the bars that these shifters bolt onto. If you buy a 9 sp bar-end shifter kit ($60 - $70, try Harris Cyclery), it will include the pods.

You mean this will include the pods?

It's just expensive to buy from the US. Buying locally or from the UK is usually the cheapest options.

THanks, I now know I need these extra little parts!

You can buy adapters to allow downtube shifters (which is what your photo showed) to be used as bar-end shifters or as aerobar shifters. Rivendell (www.rivendellbicycle.com) sell these adapters for about $30 /pair.

Usually the factory barcon kits come with the shifters, pods, cable stops, cable housing, and cables.
