Attaching downtube shifters on a frame apparently not intended for it
I'm considering replacing the stem shifters that came with my Motobécane with downtube shifters. The frame doesn't have bosses or the little brazed on stop for clamp-on shifters, however. If I attach clamp-on shifters without the stop, is it likely that it would slip down the tube, or am I just being paranoid?
