I'm looking for a set of bar-end shifters, as I'm planning to put dirt drops on my Saracen MTB, but I can't find any for under £40! Why do they cost this much, when a set of MTB brake/shifter combo units can be had for about £25 new? Is there anywhere I can get them cheaper?
Alternatively, I seem to remember seeing a pair of units that consisted of the handlebar fitting from a bar-end shifter with a downtube shifter boss on them, allowing downtube shifters to be fitted as bar-end ones. I have a set of friction DT shifters, does anyone know where I can get a set of the adapters?
Thanks in advance
