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.

My 10 spd DA barends can switch to friction. Also ran 9 spd DA bar ends on a 7 speed freewheel a few years ago by the same method.
