experiences with non-Shimano retroshift levers??

Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Has anyone tried any non-Shimano levers with Retroshift? Microshift? Sunrace?

What has worked/what hasn't?

The Microshift (Performance/Nashbar/Sunrace) 10-speed STIs are excellent. Search The Forums as there's already a lot about them.

powitti - Hi and thanks for your interest in Retroshift! Microshift current BS-A10 and BS-09 bar end type shifters will NOT work with our system. The cable groove is too short and there will be some issues shifting on the two largest cogs.

You should see a listing on the website in the next few weeks with info on other shift levers that will work. We will also be offering Retroshift with shift levers installed in the near future (if all goes well with prototypes).

Cheers!
