    Downtube shifters.

    I have a set of Shimano 105 downtube shifters.

    What is required to switch the right downtube shifter from index to friction?
    ^this may or may not be useful information <--this not so much.

    On other shamino downtube shifters there was a metal D that you could twist to change from indexing to friction.

    Do you see the small projection on the right hand shifter below? If so, pull the D ring out to 90degrees and twist in the direction indicated on the shifter.



    edit: shiFt not the original version DOH!

    Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!

    Awesome, thank you. I had the thought in my head that's what it was for...but with my luck it would have been the ejection seat activator had I not asked.

    Thanks again.
