    Suntour Accushift Barcons, what do I have?

    I just bought home a 1988ish Miyata 615. The bike has Suntour Accushift Barcons with a 6-speed freewheel and a XCR 6000 rear derailleur.

    This is the shifter: VeloBase.com - Component: SunTour SL-BC00 Bar Con (SL-BC01-R6 / SL-BC01-L)

    The rear derailleur: http://velobase.com/ViewComponent.as...2f066&Enum=108

    Can I use a 7-speed freewheel or cassette with this shifter and derailleur?

    The shifters say 7 speed, so go for it. You should stick with a 7 speed SunTour freewheel, though. It might work with a Shimano 7 speed cassette. Maybe the original FW was replaced with a 6 speed before you bought it? Do the wheels match?

    The pairing of the Suntour shifters and a Shimano freewheel and a Shimano rear derailleur (with centeron pulley) can often result in satisfactory shifting... the cog spacing is not that far off with their 6 speed indexed systems and the Shimano derailleur is a little more forgiving because the guide pulley will adjust for small deviations.
