    Are these shifters Ligit?

    I was looking around the Performance Bike website and found this little numbers. They appear to be something that could be retrofitted to bar-end style index shifters. Whatcha think?

    Thanks Mark. It seems like there is no real consensus about these shifters. We currently have index 7 speed bar end shifters on our Burley Duet. I really hate them, this is mostly because I'm so used to my Brifters and I don't like reaching for the bar ends. This seems like a reasonably priced solution but if it doesn't work then it's not worth the trouble. Have you had a chance to see them in operation?

    Yes, and I wasn't impressed, but I thought I'd let you get a rainbow of feedback vs. my own take.

    The Morphos shifters are legit. Have not used them. Apparently bridge the gap between Shim and Campy. Supposed to be the lightest on the market. They've been out for several years now and never reached the popularity level. Looks like they are trying to clear 'em out.
