    Having a flat tire as part of the total cycling experience is highly overrated. Knowing how to fix one quickly is not.

    Help me with this? I need 7sp shimano levers for 105/600 RD and what I am finding is anything BUT cheap. Anything I'm missing?
    ETA: I need DT shifters.

    Sorry to hijack the thread.

    I assume you are looking at anything Shimano? They made a lot of versions, all should work.

    One set sold a while back for $6 plus shipping. Several other sets have sold recently for $10. Are you using too many search words?


    There is a set of 105s right now, with only one bid ($5). I hate to ruin it for that bidder.

    On the OPs topic, it shouldn't work, but right now, I have Suntour 7 speed DT shifters, running a Suntour Superbe Pro 7 speed RD, with a seven speed Shimano freewheel, and KMC Z50 chain.

    I'm doing a build soon and beginning to line up parts.
    -shimano 7sp HG20 cassette
    -shimano 600 or 105 RD
    C-Dale SR frame with braze on DT bosses

    I'm not real picky about having NOS/NIB shifters, just something decent that is indexed.

    Tricky part with Cannondale is they usually use a flat adapter plate, whereas most bikes used curved ones. I have picked up flat adapter plates out of the LBS old parts bin.

    If I am not mistaken, all Shimano DT 7sp SIS shifters are interchangeable, except Dura Ace. I'm sure I have a few in my bin.
    I have the right number of bikes, I just don't have all the right ones quite yet.

    Ok, cool. I read there is also an RX100 model? I'm trying to grope around in the dark after these decades of suntour use

    I'm taking notes, thanx.

    Yep. Worked better than with the 7-cog New Winner freewheel, in fact.

    Rivendell sells them for pretty cheap, you can find them with the bar end shifters. I also ground down a curved pair for use on an aluminum frame. You just have to be careful not to take too much off. Works perfect.

    Are these the shifters being discussed? They work fine with the Shimano Deore derailleur and 7 speed Shimano cassette pictured.

    From the earlier discussion and data-points, I would assume that your Command Shifters are a 6-speed version, and that the detent-less shift goes out past the shifter's original hi gear position, to your smallest 7s cog.

    As such, it should work perfectly with no need for cable-anchoring tricks or cassette re-spacing.

    A followup:

    Well, at some point in the distant past, it looks like one of the four prongs on the freewheel was broken during a removal attempt. I assume I must be the guilty party (I'm the original owner, and I think I'm the only person who ever did any work on it), but I have no recollection of the attempt.

    Anyway, with a proper 4-prong tool, the shop made a removal attempt this week, and another prong broke off. So, I guess that freewheel is staying on this wheel forever.

    So I am still searching for a good way to lower the lowest gear ratios with a Plan B or Plan C. I'll start another thread to discuss options.

    Thanks the input, everyone.

    Since this thread popped up again- not that it's in the original premise- I was surprised by this:

    I have a 1986 Schwinn Voyageur, I had acquired an Avocet wheelset with a 5 Speed Suntour Winner FW- something like 14-34.

    When I was building it for myself, I put on a set of Suntour XC Comp derailleurs.

    Since I'm building it to sell it- I put on some 6sp DuraAce 7401 shifters and immediately set it to friction- because I knew it wouldn't index.

    Last week I had it on the stand and just for giggles, I set it to SIS- and it indexes PERFECTLY.

    Suntour Perfect 5 Speed FW
    + Suntour XC Comp RD
    + DuraAce 7401 shifters.

    = MAGIC
