So my wife took a spill today and broke her left 8sp grip shifter and got four stitches in her chin.....
Her bike a mid 90's Stumpjumper, has Deore XT derailleurs, separate brake levers and V brakes. I just put a new cassette on it but should I consider upgrading her to 9 speed? Or, can I shift an 8sp using a 9sp shifter.
Looking for suggestions for some good 8sp trigger shifters or brake / shifter combos. Maybe these:
