    hi sorry should have added that the frame seems to have used a down tube shifter before but there are no lugs on it ... or top tube.... i'd love to have either a down tube or stem shifter just what would be best to use with that setup...

    thanks a ton sorry just getting into bike repair and build

    Most likely the DRs will work.
    You need band-mount DT shifters or stem shifters, whatever you prefer.

    You know it's going to be a good day when the stem and seatpost come right out.

    Any clamp-on downtube shifter in friction mode will work fine.
