bar end shifters on North Road bars
I seem to recall reading somewhere that you can't use bar end shifters on old North Road handlebars because of the diameter and you need to get Nitto bars if you want bar ends.
So I got an ancient Takara out of the dumpster a while back with Suntour ratchet shifters and they fit my North Roads. They seem a little small for the other drop bars I have around.
Is the extra clearance for bar tape or do I have some wierd size shifters?
I have spoken.
