FB shifters with road bits?
I assume Shimano 7 speed Tourney or their other 7/8s Flatbar shifters will operate the 7/8s road ders properly right?
I've heard of it being done before, but wanted to ask all you gurus to make sure.

As to indexing, all Shimano rear derailleurs (except pre-9 speed Dura Ace) are compatible. However, front derailleurs differentiate between road and MTB/flat-bar. If the front shifter is friction, it should work with any front derailleur.
