Suntour bar-end shifter + 8 speed cassette compatability?
I am attempting to set up my girlfriend's bike with some Suntour 7-speed shifters, like these:
I am running them in friction mode with an 8-speed Shimano cassette.
Any reason this shouldn't work? Any personal experiences?
I run an older version of the Suntour barcons friction shifting a 9-speed cassette. Plenty of pull left for more if they ever invent it. Not sure if your indexing/frictions have the same capability.
show the GF your sense of adventure , stick em on and give em a go.
