Modern trigger shifter with a 1988 105 rear der.
I bought a vintage Cilo road bike for my wife and want to convert it into something she will use. She is afraid of the downtube shifters that currently work great on the bike. Bar end shifters are also not to her liking. What she does like is Grip/Throttle shifters. I will not use those. I am thinking of making the bike into a 1x7 (or 6 or 8) and am wondering if I swap out the drops for a flat bar, can I use a modern trigger shifter for the old rear der? Thanks in advance for your help.
