I'm looking to switch away from my old 'grip shift' round twisty shifters on my aerobars--- Just want to go to bar end shifter levers.

My question is that of compatibility: I have 8 speed Dura Ace.... I would like to keep the indexing for the rear. How specific do I need to get? Do I need to find 8 speed Dura Ace or with something else work as well?

Thanks in advance.

Are you telling me that grip-shift made 8 speed Dura-ace compatible shifters? Who'd have thunk it.
