More like Drewium.

Those front mechs with a cable-stop are special, and good ones are uncommon.
Every frame with a cable-stop on the downtube wants one.

Sun Tour friction shifters. Prefer short with rubberized/plastic covers.


I'm in DIY bar-con mode, and I have a good start with the parts that fit into the end of the bars, but I'm lacking the levers, washers and tightening mechanisms. If you have a set of borked bar-cons, or neglected clamp-ons and are looking to get something useful in trade, give me a ring.

Wanted - Suntour Symetric shifter mounting band(s)

I have these three and would like to try at least one out, it sounds like a great idea - why didn't it catch on?

Didn't these come only to fit a brazed boss on top of the downtube? I don't think I've seen a version with clamp.

My guess is timing. Shimano was probably perfecting early versions of SIS about the same time. That, and the trend toward integrated groups, making it less likely that a mixed group would be on a new bike.

I’ll check when I get home, but if I have one, you’ll have to take the entire thing.

There was also a clamp version. There's a few on eBay right now, like this one:

I believe they only came as a stem shifter clamp.

Well, now I want one too Not sure what for, because all my bicycles have standard downtube braze-on shifter bosses (bar one which I'm selling anyway) and I don't have much use for trimming the front where I ride usually, but the idea of front shifter trimming itself automatically is very appealing. Good thing I absolutely love my newest bicycle, otherwise I'd be looking for another frame to use these shifters on now

I don't find it difficult or exhausting to trim either derailleur, so the use of Symmetrics never appealed to me. I did though enjoy overhauling them and the chance to reverse the internal cam to use a reverse normal fd for the rare flip that had one.

Oh, there's no problem with that. I just grew lazy and complacent. My main commuting bicycle has BB spindle a few mm shorter than specified / recommended for the correct chain line and also the casette currently at the back is 7sp instead of 6sp freewheel to match the era of the other components. As a result I can basically shift from highest to lowest gear (on the big chainring at the front) and back without ever catching the front derailleur cage (not that I use more than 5 gears on that one). Which is not the case with my other bicycles. Trimming is a thing whilst riding them.

That was my precise plan. I also send 8 speed derailleurs when people ask for 7 speed. I know they underestimated...

Campy NR or Sugino Mighty Comp track/pista crank, the longer the better, DS arm only to complete, with or without chainring.

Will trade complete road minus BB of either, $$$, or?
