    9 speed cassette and 8 speed shifters

    Hey,

    Assuming friction mode, does anyone know if a 9 speed Shimano Tiagra cassette will work with the 8 speed bar end shifters (the Ultegra ones)? Also, does anyone know if these shifters are still available? Or if the 9 speed Dura Ace ones are still avaiable?

    Thanks!

    In friction mode, the 8 speed barcons will definitely shift a 9spd cassette. You can buy the 9psd DA barcons still from many online sellers including JensonUSA and bikebling.com for around $65. I have also seen the 8spd Ultegras for sale for a bit cheaper.

    As a side note: I think the DA 9spds will be around for a while longer as they have become popular with certain mountain bikers who use them in conjuction with Paul Thumbies.

    Sorry should have mentioned I'm looking for them from any European-based shop. All my favourite UK online shops are out of stock with no sign of when they will return. I could just try my LBS but I was hoping to pick them up cheap.

    May as well ask too - would the 10 speed dura ace work ok with a 9 speed cassette (again assuming friction).

    Thanks!

    Yes. Friction 10 will work with the 9spd cassette.

    I didn't have a problem buying the 9spd DA type last week. In fact, I called 3 shops and all 3 (JensonUSA, Performance Bike, and BikeBling.com) had them ready to ship out or for me to come by and pick them up. Ebay also seems to have a few sets up for auction consistently. While I can't say for certain what the Toronto or Dublin areas have for local pickup, there are definitely sites that have them and will mail them in a timely manner.
