    Need recommendation for 3x9sp shifters

    Have this mt. Tandem needs shifters . I have brake levers . May sell soon has Lx & XT on it now . What's good enough ? It's a cannondale mt800 2001 ( flat bars) I don't really like the twist variety

    Thank you

    XT thumbshift.jpg

    Works with any number of speeds in friction mode. No spring mechanism to gunk up. I have them on two of my bikes for more than 20 years

    So model number would be great & do they work index on 9sp ?friction is way to go up front

    What's wrong with your current shifters? Sometimes a flush with WD-40 restores non functioning shifters.

    That is antique and may be hard to get - Shimano XT shifters SL-M732 indexed for 7 speed only but friction mode will be able to work with 6 to 10 speed.

    That's too bad. I have an unused pair of 3X9 twist shifters that I'd make you a real good deal on. Got any trading stock?
    My greatest fear is all of my kids standing around my coffin and talking about "how sensible" dad was.

    You need mountain bike shifters to go with your MTB rear derailer and to fit your handlebars. These will work:

    They got destroyed .I then replaced with XT brake/shift units that went on my other project. Tandem been hanging 2 years now sans shifters

    I did see the SL-M430 didn't know how well they worked

    I replaced grip shifters on a Trek that I built for my daughter with Deore shifters similar to those. She likes them and they have been trouble free for years now.
